Sunflower Stamped Pumpkin Patch Art

 

This adorable pumpkin patch art is great for kids of all ages! Made with simple supplies like paint, paper and a sunflower head, this is a great way to create art using nature!




Harper and I love to paint together. We have been crafting side by side since she was just a tiny toddler, strapped into a high chair for safety. We have painted pineapples, apples, baskets of fruit and even Christmas trees. We usually use corks to create our process art, but we had a bouquet of sunflowers that had seen better days, and well, inspiration hit.

We decided our fridge just had to have a pumpkin patch scene. We are all about creating refrigerator masterpieces 

Supplies:

Orange paint

Green paint

A sunflower head

White paper

A paper plate


Pour orange paint and a small amount of green paint onto a paper plate.



Invite your child to press the sunflower head into the orange paint.

Encourage your child to press the sunflower onto the paper.



Use a stem, petal, or other small item to form the stem of the pumpkin with the green paint.

Allow the paint to dry, then



These were so much fun to make! And I think they turned out really cute! Harper was very proud of her efforts. Preschoolers can handle this project, as well as elementary aged kids like Harper. Your kids might also like to draw little pumpkin faces on these after they have dried.


I hope you get a chance to try this project with your family, it is the perfect project for a fall afternoon!
