Pumpkin Patch Watercolor and Paint for Kids

Pumpkins are a favorite fall theme. And we love doing crafts with pumpkins. Today I have a great pumpkin watercolor and paint mixed art project with cookie cutters.

This pumpkin painting is great for fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.

It is a super simple fall art project that a mix of ages could do at the same time!

I love when you can do an art project with a book and we love The Pumpkin Book by Gail Gibbons. She has some great books and this is one we have read many times!

I also like that you can learn about pumpkins and the different ways they are used.

It is a great book to go along with this pumpkin painting with cookie cutters.

How to make the Mixed Art Pumpkin Patch

When you are coloring a background with watercolors, you can just paint with water over the watercolor paper to help the watercolor spread easier.

We started with green watercolor. You can use one color of green and mix different colors of green. It is fun to do a mix of colors. We also picked how high the green would go and left space for blue.

Then we painted the sky blue. We did a mix of light and dark colors to give it a unique feel. I also like that when you don’t use a lot of water with watercolors the paper is ready quickly for the next step.

Next, we pulled out the two sizes of pumpkin cookie cutters. We used a cotton ball in a clothespin for our brush. This gave the pumpkins a fun texture. You hold the cookie cutter in place and then paint inside leaving the stem part not colored.

We then painted the stem of the pumpkin with a q-tip. It made it easy to get into smaller spaces.
