If you need an EASY art activity to do this fall with your kiddos, this pumpkin painting with washi tape is perfect! It requires very little prep, few materials, and is so simple you could even do it with toddlers.
I’m a big believer that the process behind the artwork is more important than the final product, but I think you’ll find both very rewarding in this case. Your kiddos will get the chance to practice following directions and exercise their fine motor skills through cutting out the pumpkin outline, the pulling/tearing/smoothing/pinching the tape, and painting the pumpkin. A beautiful pumpkin results.
