Something Special ~ Baby Food Jar Pumpkins Craft

Baby Food Jar Pumpkins

Again,  I browsed around online for pumpkin craft inspiration and came across this post from Stacie. We didn’t have small bottles but we did have baby food jars, so I modified the craft a bit! Here’s our baby food jar pumpkins!

Pumpkin Craft (5 of 5)

It was a very simple craft to make, with little mess for momma to deal with.

~ First, have your kids rip up orange construction paper, crumple it up and stuff into the jars.  This is a great fine motor activity for little ones!

Ladybug was EXTREMELY into the stuffing part!  She loved this!  It kept her busy the entire time while I did the other things with the boys!Pumpkin Craft (4 of 5)

I was engaged with the kids for the rest of the steps, so no photos, but here’s what we did…

~cut jack-o-lantern faces out of black construction paper

~use a green Sharpie to color the jar lids

~twist a green pipe cleaner into a stem {Pac did his own, I did K and L’s}

~use a hot glue gun for it all!

They are now adorable little keepsakes and will certainly be brought out as decorations for years to come!
