Easy Apple Pumpkin Craft for Kids

Sharing is caring!

Last time my husband and I went on a date night we were happy to discover that the restaurant we stopped at for dinner had an Octoberfest menu. My hubby ordered schnitzel and I chose a salad only because I wanted to leave room for dessert. We hardly ever order dessert but they had apple strudel. How can we say no to this? Unfortunately, when the dessert came, I have to say we were disappointed. Presenting an apple pastry with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and caramelized nuts doesn’t turn it into an apple strudel.

Lesson learned: Next time I see apple strudel on a menu I’ll keep my expectations low. After all we’ll probably never taste better strudels than the ones we ate when visiting the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany.

Same way goes for pumpkin pie. Wanna try the best pumpkin pie in the world? You need to come to the States.

Step 1: Paint your pumpkins red. I used this paint which I absolutely love because, unlike a craft paint, it has a glossy finish and doesn’t require so many coats of paint. I only used one coat for these pumpkins. This is my go-to red paint and I’ve used it for several crafts like the cardboard car wash, DIY baking kit and DIY cupcake kit.

Step 2: While the paint dries (this takes longer than the craft itself) cut out small leaves from green felt, construction paper or card stock.

Step 3: Glue the leaves to the stems.
