With this being the Sunday before Halloween we created these paper plate Shining Jack-o-Lanterns to remind us that God shines His light through us. It was a perfect opportunity to explain to the kids that Halloween is about fun times and use it as a teaching moment.
To give the jack-o-lantern the 3D effect glue or staple each plate backwards (to give sort of a bubble or open area between the plates).
Every year my students love making these Shining Jack-o-lanters. So Fun!
Paper plates are one of my favorite materials to craft with. I usually pick them up at the dollar store to keep on hand for crafting with my students.
