Jack O’Lantern Paper Plate Craft for Halloween

This is a super simple Halloween craft!

  1. Paint a paper plate orange (we 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)
  2. Color a rectangular piece of paper green to make a stem
  3. Add ties to the side to turn it into a mask.
  4. Wear your mask!

This is also an opportunity for preschoolers to practice colors and shapes.

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