Supplied needed

  • Apples
  • Paper
  • Paint (orange and green)
  • Black crayon or marker / googly eyes
  • Knife
  • Chopping board


  1. Cut an apple in half.
  2. Dip the apple stamp directly onto a plate of orange paint. Any water-based paint, such as tempera or poster paint, can be used on paper. Instead of dipping, you can apply orange paint onto the apple with a paint brush. If your apple has a stem, paint the stem green.
  3. Press the apple onto paper. If your apple has a stem, apply pressure on the stem so that it comes into contact with the paper.
  4. Lift the apple to reveal a coloured pumpkin print.
  5. Create lots of pumpkins by stamping more apple prints. You can do them in neat rows or go with a random pattern.
  6. Let the paint dry completely.
  7. Draw a face on each pumpkin using a black crayon, coloured pencil, or marker. Give each one a different expression.
