Printmaking with Apples: Pumpkin Jack-o-Lanterns

This was a fun introduction to printmaking.  I did this project with Kindergartners.  I got the idea from this image on Pinterest.

I read them The Pumpkin Book by Gail Gibbons.  I cut apples in half and the students dipped them into orange paint and stamped them on their paper.


The next art class, I provided them with printouts of images I found online of jack-o-lanterns and the students used markers to draw faces and stems on the pumpkins.

To color the grass, we held peeled green crayons on their side and rubbed it around the background.
