Step One: Gather materials:
- 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin (fresh or canned).
- 1 cup shaving cream (unscented).
- 1 cup white school glue.
- 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (you can use a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice if you don’t have this spice blend).
- Fingerpaint paper.
orange food coloring or food paste for extra color (optional).
Step Two: Stir the ingredients together but don’t over mix so as to keep it fluffy. There will be specks of texture because of the spice blend but this will only add more realism to the painting.
Step Three: Give the child the freedom to create whatever they want. They can use a scoop to scoop paint onto the paper, use their hands, or pour paint onto the paper.
