Preschool Stamp Art Project
- An apple.
- Paper towel.
- Cutting board.
- Construction paper.
- Orange and green paint.
- Small paintbrush.
- Paint palette, paper plate, or bit of parchment paper.
Start by cutting your apple in half, from the top to the bottom. Set the half you’re going to use as a stamp onto a paper towel for about 20 minutes. This will dry out the surface of the apple so it can hold onto the paint. As for the other half? It can be a stamp too, or a snack, it’s up to you!
When your apple is dry, you’re ready to go! Put some orange paint on your palette, and get your construction paper ready. I went with black so the paint colors would pop, but you can use any color you’d like. Now take your apple half and dip it into the paint, swirling it around until the entire surface of the apple is covered with a medium layer of paint.
A nice even layer is the key to a pretty pumpkin. Now press your apple stamp down on your paper where you want your pumpkin to be. Firmly press it down evenly, and then lift it up carefully from the paper. There! You have a cute little pumpkin!
Now, just make as many cute little pumpkins as you want on your paper. Let the pumpkins dry for about 30 minutes. When they’re dry, put a little bit of green paint onto your palette. In my case I used a paper towel, that works too! Get some paint on your small paintbrush.
And paint a chubby upside down triangle shape to make a pumpkin stem! Then just make some curly lines coming from the base of the stem to make your pumpkin vines.
Let it dry, and you’re all done! I hope you enjoy making this Pumpkin Apple Stamp Art Project, and don’t forget to get creative! Nothing says you can’t have purple or blue pumpkins if that’s what your little one wants to create!
