Try your hand at pumpkin print making – with an apple! This fall fun craft makes it easy to create seasonal stationery and gift bags.

  • 1.

    Cover your work area with recycled paper. Keep paper towels and water nearby for easy cleanup and color changes. Ask an adult to help you cut an apple in half on a safe surface.

  • 2.

    Use a paint brush to apply orange paint to the cut side of the apple.

  • 3.

    Gently press the cut side of the apple onto the paper. Rock the apple gently back and forth to make a clear print of the apple. Gently lift the apple. You will see a “pumpkin” print!

  • 4.

    Continue to paint and print your pumpkin on the paper until you have finished your project.

  • 5.

    Use a paint brush dipped in green paint to add stems, vines and other details. Experiment with different sized apples, other colors of paint and different types of paper to create a variety of prints.
