This year is just moving right along, isn’t it? August is halfway gone and we’re looking at September. Wow. Now is the right time to start planning our fall crafts and activities for the kids, and that’s why I’m sharing a brand new one of our coffee filter crafts for kids – a cute coffee filter pumpkin craft!
Kids can make this craft with very little help, if any at all! While we made ours with traditional colors, if the kids want to make a purple pumpkin or a gold pumpkin, who’s to stop them?
This would be a great addition to a fall unit, a farm unit, or a harvest unit! Be sure to share some great fall books for kids along with this activity too!
Coffee Filter Crafts for Kids: Coffee Filter Pumpkin Craft
To make this coffee filter pumpkin craft, you’ll need the following: (Affiliate links are provided here for convenience. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
Start by flattening out the coffee filter and coloring the entire thing orange.
Now use the scissors to cut the filter into a pumpkin shape. To do this, cut the bottom into a flat shape and then cut a slight heart shape into the very top. Leave the sides as is.
Now glue the filter onto the construction paper.
Use a brown crayon to draw a thick stem at the center of the top of the filter.
Now add a few lines on the pumpkin using the brown crayon. These are the “curves” that make the pumpkin appear ridged.
Add a little decoration, if you want, and you’re done!
