It's October!  October means all things pumpkin.  October also means lots of fall fun for kids.  Here is a list of pumpkin crafts and activities for kids.

Pumpkin Crafts and Activities for Kids

1.  Apple Stamping Pumpkin Craft:  Stamp cute pumpkins onto paper using an apple and orange paint.  Add googly eyes for super cuteness.  Check out this fun pumpkin craft from Made to Be a Momma.

2.  Easy Tide Pod Pumpkin:  Make a cute plastic pumpkin using an empty Tide pod container.  This craft looks nice with the green glittery lid.  Learn more about this craft from Tot School Resources here.

3.  Create mini pumpkins using orange pipe cleaners.  There are lots of other pipe cleaner crafts here at Fabulessly Frugal.

4.  Pumpkin Memory Matching Game:  Not only will your children improve memory skills, but they will also learn about emotions.  They'll improve social skills as they learn about 12 different emotions represented in this pumpkin matching game (update:  This game is no longer available.)

5.  Pumpkin Seed Puzzles:  Practice number recognition using this pumpkin seed puzzle suggestion from I Can Teach My Child.

6.  Paint Squishy Pumpkins:  Add colorful character to these solid white squishy pumpkins using this squishy pumpkin craft kit.  They can develop those motor skills while squishing them as they play with these pumpkins and decorate them.
