Halloween is a season of fun and adventure. Kids get to carve jack-o-lanterns, wear exciting costumes, and enjoy special treats.

It's easy to add even more fun to the holiday with pumpkin crafts and activities.


This painting activity uses a homemade painting tool made with craft sticks. The tools are easy to make with this simple tutorial. 

 

apply glue to drawer knob with glue gun

 

We altered the design a little by gluing two craft sticks side by side with a glue gun. This made a wider base, that not only made nice rounded pumpkins, but also allowed a larger handle to be attached to the base.

These craft stick tools provide a unique painting opportunity.
