Apple Stamping Pumpkin Craft
Apple stamping is such a fun activity to do with the kids.
Kids will be amazed at how, on paper, an apple can turn into a pumpkin. An apple is the perfect “pumpkin shape”. It’s such a fun fall craft.
I turned my pumpkins into a pumpkin patch scene. If the kids want more of a fun Halloween pumpkin, they can customize theirs with Jack-O-Lantern faces.
