Pumpkin Activities for Kids and Adults

Pumpkin Play Dough

 Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Orange play dough or a homemade orange play dough with pumpkin pie spice.
  • Dried Black beans


  1.  Form your play dough into pumpkin shapes.
  2.  Arrange and poke the dried black beans on play dough.
  3. Display the pumpkins or remove the beans and store the play dough for another day.

The kids really loved this activity. Leeland really got into this. more than I though he would.  They all really enjoyed  making different faces with the black beans.  Then they soon moved on to making pumpkin snowmen, and balls with  beans in the middle.


Duck Tape Pumpkin 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • canning rings
  • duck tape
  • cinnamon sticks
  • yarn


  1.  Wrap your rings with duck tape
  2. Arrange in a circle and tie together with string
  3. Stick a few cinnamon in the center for the stem.

This was a fun project just for me and it took only a few minutes to do.  It’s been a nice addition in my fall displays.
