Bottle Cap Pumpkin Stamping - vines addedThe pumpkin theme is definitely my favorite for fall, in the classroom. There are numerous sensory activities that can be incorporated, which provide such fun and excitement! After providing real pumpkins for hands on exploration, I give the students many opportunities to paint with fall colors and different types of materials. One of the most adorable crafts has to be these pumpkins painted using soda bottle caps. It's easy, fun, and fairly quick! I definitely turn to this one every year!


Total Time: 15 minutes to paint and a couple hours to dry

Yield: 1 pumpkin patch and 2 individual pumpkin cards


  • 1.5 sheets of white construction paper
  • finger paint (orange, brown, green)
  • markers - optional (brown, green)
  • 2 fine paint brushes
  • scissors- optional
  • 1 paper plate
  • 1 soda bottle cap
  • 1 milk jug cap

  1. Pour the orange paint into a paper plate. Dip the soda cap into the paint.
  2. Bottle Cap Pumpkin Stamping - dip soda bottle cap into orange paint on a paper plate
  3. Stamp the soda cap down, anywhere on the full sheet of paper. Stamp it two more times, overlapping the previous stamp by half each time. I found that the stamped pumpkins resembled real ones more when I went from left to right.

  5. Continue adding pumpkins until you feel you have enough.

  9. You can also paint or draw green vines throughout the patch, like in the main photo.
  10. If you want to have larger pumpkins, use a milk jug lid like I did for these two. You can cut your half sheet down into individual cards that you can use for decoration or even treat bag gift tags!
