Silly Halloween Pumpkin

Halloween art lessons for kids have built in color when you start with brightly colored paper. Make this silly pumpkin face for a fun holiday project.

Halloween art lessons for kids

The particular pumpkin was made with some very cool marble paper years ago, which sadly I have not been able to find again. I know that you can get an assorted pack with a few sheets of orange, but that’s never going to work for a full classroom.

Not to worry though, any bright orange paper will work great as the star of this project is the funny teeth and oversized eyes.

If you try this with kinders or first grade, I strongly recommend either giving them a template for the pumpkin and mouth, or maybe pre printed lines. Trust me, you will get a ton of tiny pumpkins with no room for teeth, if you don’t. And the redos may kinda break your paper budget. Just a friendly warning.


There are more fun and easy Halloween projects like this one, in my HALLOWEEN DRAWING ebook. It contains 25 brand new tutorials that first timers can try out to draw new shapes, and the more experienced can use as a starting point before adding their own twists, and details, and shadows.

Each project includes easy to follow step-by-step tutorial, a full size line drawing for reference, and finished color sample. Just click on the title or book to learn more.
