Making Jack-O-Lantern’s out of paper plates is a super easy Halloween kids craft! These little pumpkin plates require very few supplies and look really cute when they are finished. This is a great craft activity for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners.

Things You Need:

  • Paper Plates
  • Orange Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Eyes, Nose & Mouth Cut-Outs
  • Orange Glitter (optional)
  • Green pipe cleaners, green ribbon or green paper
  • Masking tape


Step 1: Paint the backside of the plate orange.

Step 2:  Attach the Jack-O-Lantern’s eyes, nose & mouth.

Step 3:  Sprinkle the orange glitter (optional).

Step 4: Let it dry. Then attach something green to the top of the pumpkin to make a stem (green pipe cleaner, green curly ribbon, green paper, etc.).

Step 5: Hang your Jack-O-Lanterns around the house to get into the Halloween spirit.

Hope you have a safe & fun Halloween!
