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.
It’s an iconic picture that you have to take if you’re visiting in the months of September or October!
Since we love Halloween at Disneyland so much, we decided to make this Mickey Mouse pumpkin craft inspired by the giant Mickey pumpkin!
It’s just another one of our pumpkin crafts for kids that make celebrating Halloween as a family extra special!
If your family loves all things Disney, they’ll love making this fun Disney Halloween craft. Read or watch the video below to see how insanely simple this cute pumpkin craft is!
Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Craft
There are two things we love about this craft!
One, it requires only a few common craft 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!).
- Colored cardstock or construction paper
- Glue stick
- Mickey Mouse pumpkin template (enter your email in the form at the end of the post to get the template)
Download the Mickey Mouse pumpkin template and print each of the pages onto the corresponding colored paper. Cut out each of the pieces.
Begin 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.
Glue the green stem at the top of the pumpkin, in between the two ears.
Glue the eyes in the middle and slightly below the stem.
Glue the nose beneath the eyes.
Lastly, glue the main smile and the two smile lines below the nose, in the middle of the pumpkin.
