Jack O’ Lantern mask from a paper plate

Johnny in his pumpkin jack o' lantern mask made from a paper plate

Johnny made this cute Jack O’ Lantern mask in preschool. It’s a cute, simple craft that is perfect for Halloween! Paint a paper plate orange (I think they cut out the eyes and mouth first, but you could do this after painting if you are willing to let the paint dry and don’t use paint that cracks easily), color a rectangular piece of paper green to make a stem, and add ties to the side to turn it into a mask. Johnny adored this mask, until it somehow got ripped in half. Time to make a new one!

Johnny demonstrates wearing the pumpkin mask upside down to make a "frowny face"

Johnny’s favorite feature? The mask could be worn upside down to “make a frowny face”, and you could still (sort of) see!
