A melton crayon pumpkin is the perfect fall activity. During our girls’ weekend, we decided to decorate pumpkins and we had a blast! It was very easy and the end result was a colorful and unique pumpkin that I could place on my front porch. If you are looking for kids’ fall activity that doesn’t include carving a pumpkin, this is for you.

Crayon Pumpkin Idea Instructions
Glue the crayons on near the stem of the pumpkin using Glue Dots or Tacky Glue to keep the crayons in place while you melt them.
Find a blow dryer that gets hot quickly and direct the heat towards each crayon. Be patient as the melting does not happen right away. As a matter of fact, I was worried it wasn’t going to work, but then all of a sudden the crayons started to melt and it was so much fun to watch the color mix and melt together.
Tilt the pumpkin to direct the wax to melt around the pumpkin. If you have a friend nearby, recruit them to help you do this so you can focus on blow drying the pumpkin. Watch the short video below if you need a visual on how it works! So incredibly easy and the options are endless when it comes to what colors you choose to melt on your pumpkin.
It’s that easy! The hardest part of this Fall project is having the patience to wait for the crayons to melt and dry. It’s definitely worth the wait and the color creations are endless.
