Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Are you making pie? While you bake, the kids can paint and play with their very own Pumpkin Pie Painting. It’s a super easy craft made from the lid to frozen pie crusts. Plus it has some fun sensory play at the end, too… Keep reading for more fun paint painting ideas plus this week’s installment of the Love to Learn Linky.
Pumpkin Pie Painting and Messy Play Supplies Needed:
- Lid to a frozen pie crust (or a glass pie plate)
- Paint (We used brown, orange, yellow, white & red, but any will do.)
- Shaving cream
- Baking sheet to contain the mess
First, paint the underside of the pie crust lid. Painting the bottom (instead of the top) makes the “whipped cream” stay creamy white in the next step.
Next, flip lid over and get out the shaving cream. The Babe loves using the can all by herself. Have towels ready!
Beware that the shaving cream fun might get a little crazy if you step into the other room to do dishes…
