Set the scene for Halloween fun…with a delightful Jack-O’-Lantern kids will love to display!

This activity is appropriate for:
kindergarten - 2nd grade / 5 - 7 years

You will need:


  1. Cut two identical pumpkin shapes out of orange construction paper.
  2. Place two pumpkins back to back, then punch holes along the outer edges.
  3. Lace orange yarn through the holes to string the two pumpkins together. Be sure to leave a small opening.
  4. Stuff the pumpkin with newspaper through the opening, then lace the pumpkin completely together and tie a small knot at the top.
  5. Encourage kids to turn their pumpkin into a Jack-O’-Lantern by cutting eyes, a nose, and a mouth out of black construction paper. Glue the pieces onto the stuffed pumpkin.
  6. Use green tissue paper to cut out a stem and a vine. Now, kids can display their own Halloween Jack-O’-Lanterns!
