20 Brand New Pumpkin Coloring Pages – Free to Print and Color
It’s believed that Jack-o’-lanterns have been used since the 19th century as a Halloween tradition and that they describe the visual phenomenon of “will-o’-the-wisp.”
Just in time for Halloween comes this scary-looking Jack-o’-lantern with menacing eyes!
The carved pumpkin stands on some grass, is framed by two lit candles, and it looks as if it’s part of some magic ritual. Could it be that a witch put it there? Maybe it even has magical powers?
This pumpkin printable is fun to color, and if your child has an active imagination and loves Halloween stories, they’ll certainly tell you what it could be up to.
Not all Jack-o’-lanterns have to be scary. In this pumpkin coloring page, we have three laughing pumpkins that seem to be having fun.
They’re different sizes, so they could be a happy pumpkin family that’s getting ready for Halloween.
We could color all three of them orange, but we could also imagine what each pumpkin’s favorite color is and switch things up a bit.
These pumpkins are also laying on the grass, which could be a field, a pumpkin patch, or someone’s garden.
If you haven’t done any pumpkin carving yet, this coloring page could inspire a fun DIY activity for the entire family.
Maybe you can carve a pumpkin for each family member!
There is a definite Halloween feeling to this pumpkin coloring sheet!
This one is looking particularly spooky and ghoulish, and you can take the Halloween theme even further with the colors and extra details that you add.
Some examples of details you could add would be some scary bats or cobwebs, and these are just a few ideas.
We think it would also look great to use brighter yellows and oranges inside the eyes and mouth with some lighter orange for the pumpkin exterior.
This would help to make it look like there is a candle burning inside.
This next pumpkin has a really funny face carved into it! It looks rather tired, as if it is at the end of the Halloween season.
Because of this, we would probably go for some lighter colors using mediums such as colored pencils or maybe some watercolors to make it look older.
You may have a different interpretation of the facial expression, however! So, if you wanted to use some brighter colors and mediums, that would definitely work as well!
What emotions do you feel from this particular pumpkin?
This next pumpkin coloring sheet sends witchy Halloween vibes. It depicts four carved pumpkins stacked on the grass, on top of each other, and the one on top has a big witch’s hat.
In the background, we can see some bubbles that could be coming from a cauldron nearby.
Maybe the pumpkin on top could be a witch that transformed herself?
Looking at this printable, our mind can’t help but wander off to magical stories about witches, ghosts, and ghouls, and that’s exactly why we all love Halloween so much.
We couldn’t talk about Halloween without mentioning trick or treating. After spending weeks working on their costumes, kids can’t wait to go from door to door and get their candy.
This coloring page shows a pumpkin whose top was cut off to form a lid, so it could be a great place to store all the delicious Halloween candy!
The pumpkin has a big smile that warms our hearts, and even looking at it as an adult, it’s impossible not to let yourself be carried away to careless childhood days.
It’s no wonder pumpkins are some of the most beloved fall decorations!
Even if you don’t celebrate Halloween or carve pumpkins, they’re still nostalgic fall symbols that remind us of crisp days, fallen leaves, and relaxing walks through pumpkin patches.
In this pumpkin coloring page for kids, we have what could be a corner of a pumpkin patch.
Here we have three pumpkins in different sizes that make us think of nature, fall harvest, and, why not, delicious pies.
To make this printable look more interesting, you can use a solid color, then add shadows in darker colors to create a fun 3D design.
We love the silly and wacky face that is on this next pumpkin we have for you!
Halloween pumpkins are often made to be really scary-looking, but this one shows off that they can be fun and quirky as well.
That’s why we would probably choose some bright and vibrant colors if we were to color this one in.
We think that would be perfect for the whimsical, fun feeling this one gives off. As always, that is just one idea you could try!
Now it’s up to you to show us what kinds of ideas you have for this one.
This next page in our collection of free pumpkin coloring pages for kids features one that is looking rather nervous to say the least!
What do you think could be making this pumpkin look so agitated? This would be the perfect picture to add some extra details to in order to create a scene that shows off why it is feeling this way.
Even if you don’t add any extra details, you could finish off the mood of the image purely with the colors that you choose. We’re sure this one will look really fun when it’s finished!
We only have one pumpkin in this printable, but what a pumpkin it is! It’s definitely a standout Halloween decoration, so let’s color it in a way that does it justice!
For this pumpkin coloring page, we can use several shades of orange, yellow, and red, and we could color the grass in the background with a paler green so that the subject stands out more.
For the eyes and mouth, we can use glitter pens or acrylic paints to show that the Jack-o’-lantern is lit from within.
This beautiful pumpkin coloring sheet is a fun way to teach your kids about the fruits and vegetables harvested in the fall.
And speaking of that, pumpkins are technically fruits because they grow from seeds!
This pumpkin has an intricate, stylized design, and you can use it to teach your child about the parts of a pumpkin, such as the shell, leaf, and stem.
For this coloring sheet, you can use the classic colors, orange for the shell and green for the leaf.
You can then share some fun facts about pumpkins, such as that they grow in patches and that the average pumpkin produces about 500 seeds.
And did you know that the word “pumpkin” comes from a Greek word that means “large melon”?
We have something a bit different for this next page. This is a really interesting take on a Halloween pumpkin, and there is so much detail to this one.
The way the lines are drawn around this one almost makes it look a bit like this one is at the bottom of the ocean.
If you think that is what it looks like, then you could use some blues and greens for the background.
Or maybe you could create a wonderfully vibrant, bright picture instead! What do you think you will be inspired to go with?
Here’s another fun pumpkin design for you to enjoy. This one looks a bit like it could be an alien pumpkin!
For that reason, we would maybe go for some bright alien green for the surface of this one instead of the usual orange.
You could also really get creative with the background and create an imaginative alien landscape behind it.
There are so many awesome ways that you could bring this page to life. We think that this one is perfect for just unleashing your imagination!
Don’t be afraid to get weird and wacky as you finish off this page.
This pumpkin coloring page looks as if it was taken from a charming fall landscape. Surrounded by grass and leaves, it reminds us of a warm fall day when all you want to do is play outside until dusk.
Then, what better way to end the day than to snuggle in your favorite blanket, have a cup of hot chocolate, and do some coloring?
It’s the perfect family time activity, and it’s educational as well because your child can learn about the fruits and veggies that grow in the fall.
What’s better than having a walk through a pumpkin patch?
Bringing your puppy along, of course! In this coloring page, we have three pumpkins, but the star is definitely the adorable puppy that’s poking his head from behind them.
Look how happy he looks! He probably wants to play hide and seek with the kids! Whether your family has a puppy or not, this pumpkin printable will definitely be a joy to color!
For the pumpkin coloring printable you have in front of you, we are presenting a spooky and creative scene!
The larger pumpkin has been arranged with some smaller ones, and it looks like it is about to gobble them up. It’s quite an intense little scene, but it would also be perfect for a Halloween yard display!
The background has been left blank and open, and you could finish it off in so many different ways.
We think creating a misty, purple sky with a bright moon and flying bats would be perfect for that Halloween mood.
We have quite an odd couple for you to color in here! The pumpkin on the left looks fairly happy and friendly, and it is paired with a much larger, much scarier pumpkin.
For this reason, we think that this one would look cool if you used a different color scheme for each one.
For example, the one on the left could have brighter colors, while the one on the right could be darker and moodier.
How do you think you will differentiate between these two fun pumpkin designs?
Ending our collection of pumpkin coloring pages, we have another carved pumpkin that has a huge smile on his face.
And so do we, because we love Halloween, and we love fall with all its charming colors!
We hope you enjoyed coloring these pumpkin printables as much as we did selecting them, and remember to come back soon for more!
How cute is this next pumpkin design? Many of the pumpkins have been scary in this collection, but this one has a much softer and more inviting look to it.
It is styled to look like a cute kitty, and it would be a much more inviting sight than most Halloween pumpkins you would see in yards!
What kinds of colors do you think would suit this Halloween kitty? We would probably go for some softer pinks or other more cheerful colors if we were coloring this one.
That is what we think, but do you have something else in mind for this one?
Next, we have another scary pumpkin coloring page for you to enjoy! It’s not every day you see a pumpkin munching on another one, but that is the case here.
It really makes for such a fun design, and it’s the kind of scene you could imagine someone creative making for their yard display.
Now, the only question is what kinds of colors do you think would suit this gruesome pumpkin display?
It’s the kind of picture that could work with many different color schemes, so let your creativity take over as you fill it in!
