Pumpkin Seed Collage

If you’re in search of a pumpkin-themed creative arts activity for young kids, try this pumpkin seed collage project. This collage is perfect for Thanksgiving and fall. It is also a great way to use pumpkin seeds after a pumpkin carving activity.


  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Orange construction paper
  • Glue
  • Water
  • Foam paint brush
  • Pumpkin pie spice (optional)

Enlist children to help wash and dry the pumpkin seeds. Help kids draw a pumpkin shape and stem on a sheet of orange construction paper. Dilute the glue slightly with water. Show children how to brush the glue on the pumpkin and then sprinkle the pumpkin seeds onto the pumpkin. Let children shake off the excess and then sprinkle on pumpkin pie spice.
