Pumpkin Apple StampsIf you're in search of a Halloween project for the littlest boos and ghouls, this one's for you. Pumpkin Apple Stamps are a preschooler's delight and only require an apple, orange and green paint, white paper and a paint brush.

Dip it in some orange paint and have your little one stamp away to his heart's content. Once it's dry, you can add Jack-O-Lantern faces with black crayon or marker, too. Look at the these Pumpkin Apple Stamps and see for yourself!
