This easy pumpkin craft is the perfect Halloween craft for little hands. Use the free printable pumpkin template and let the kids glue the marshmallows to make a “mummy pumpkin” on paper.
Just keep an eye on how many marshmallows actually make it to the craft!
Halloween Fun Alert!
Look no further for a perfect Halloween Craft. This easy pumpkin craft is doable for little hands but can also be quite fun for older kiddos.
Like many of our Halloween Crafts (Foam Bats, Candy Corn Craft, Masking Tape Mummies, Handprint Spiders, etc.) they come together quickly and any well-stocked craft bin will have the pieces you need to make Pipe Cleaner Spiders.
P.S. When you’re done crafting, download and play Halloween Bingo! We give you everything you need in the pdf download.
A Short Video on How this Pumpkin Craft Comes Together
- Googly eyes (optional)
- Pumpkin Template (download for free below!)
Print the Pumpkin Template
Print the template on either plain white paper or orange paper.
I personally like the look of orange paper. If you only have white, you could always have your little crafter color in the pumpkin before adding marshmallows.
Add the Eyes (Optional)
If you want to add googly eyes, do it before gluing on the marshmallows!
Start by adding a line of glue to the rectangles on the pumpkin.
Add the Marshmallows
One by one, add the marshmallows. My son lined his up pretty uniformly but don’t feel like it has to look like that. Like our Paper Plate Pumpkin Craft, messy is cute!
Cut it Out
Let the glue dry and then cut the pumpkin out.
You now have the sweetest pumpkin craft! These pumpkin mummies will be a hit with all ages.
Here is what it looks like on white paper.
