Shining Jack-o-Lantern Paper Plate Craft

Happy Sunday!

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. 

Supplies:
paper plates
black marker
yellow card stock or construction paper
brown construction paper or cardstock
glue 
stapler
orange crayon


Glue yellow circle on paper plate opposite of face; attach/glue brown stem in place. 
Attach face with glue or staple for additional hold.
