DIY: Scratch-Off Pumpkins

sayyes

altLooking for a cool craft to do with kids this season? I saw these in a catalog this past week and had an immediate flash back to my childhood. I thought of a fun way to DIY this scratch-off board that your child will love to scratch off his pumpkin design on!

Supplies:

  • cardboard
  • assortment of spray paint (preferably gold and orange or red and pink)
  • chalkboard paint
  • paper clip (or something small and sharp)
  • newspaper (or something to protect your surface)

Instructions:

Step 1: Lay out newspaper to protect your surface and place you sheet on cardboard on top of it.

Step 2: Spray paint your piece of cardboard with strips of color. Let dry completely.

Step 3: Once dry, spray paint the whole cardboard in chalkboard paint. If you don't have chalkboard paint, use black paint.

Step 4: Give the paper clip to your child and have him scratch off a jack-o-lantern design into the cardboard with the paper clip!
