Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Craft For Kids [Free Template]

Have you and your family ever visited Disneyland during their Halloween celebrations? It’s so much fun to visit during that time for lots of reasons.

First, there are all the Halloween costumes the Disney characters wear. Second, there’s the nighttime trick-or-treating. There are also special parades, memorabilia, and even fireworks! But one of our favorite things about Halloween at Disneyland is taking a picture right in front of the giant Mickey Mouse pumpkin statue on Main Street.

So, we decided to make this Mickey Mouse pumpkin craft – inspired by the giant Mickey pumpkin!

It’s an easy way to bring some Disneyland magic into your home during the Halloween season. Kids will also work on their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination while constructing this activity!

It’s just another one of our pumpkin crafts for kids that make celebrating Halloween as a family extra special!

There are two things we love about this idea!

One, it requires only a few common supplies we bet you already have lying around the house. Two, it’s super short and easy for kids of all ages to help out with (or do it entirely on their own!).

Supplies

Directions

Start by downloading the pumpkin template and printing it out. Once you have the template printed, gather the materials needed for this fun activity. Get those scissors ready, and let’s help the kids bring this project to life!

First, encourage your child to assemble the Mickey pumpkin by gluing each of the two smaller pumpkins on each side of the larger pumpkins. These are Mickey’s ears.

Next, guide your child to glue the green stem at the top of the pumpkin, in between the two ears.

Room On The Broom: This has to be one of our favorite Halloween books of all time! The story follows a witch and her cat as they happen upon some animals who help the witch. There’s danger, mystery, and friendship in this adorable children’s story.
