Free printable Halloween Jack-O-Lantern craft for preschool!
I am so happy that September has finally arrived!
The days are getting shorter and the fall season is at our doorstep. For many of us, it is one of the most favorite seasons of the year.
Last year, we did our first pumpkin patch trip to a nearby farm.
And even though my boys can hardly remember it, I can’t wait to take them again this year. They will certainly enjoy it with all their senses, being toddlers and all.
With all of this going through my mind lately, I can hardly stop all the fall craft ideas coming. My list is certainly longer than the hours in one day allow me to do. But at least I can try.
Just today I finished another fall printable – Halloween Jack O Lantern craft for preschool kids to make.
Halloween Jack O Lantern Craft
If you have a busy preschooler at home or kindergarten kids just waiting for the candy season to start, then this Halloween Jack O Lantern craft is perfect for you.
Children will stay occupied for a while trying to cut out all the pieces and make different silly faces.
Younger children might need help cutting out some of the pieces so make sure you’re nearby.
This would be a fun activity to use in afterschool programs, scissor skills centers in the classroom, or during a long rainy weekend at home!
Preschool Jack O Lantern Crafts
There are three pages included in this printable PDF.
The first page is a big orange pumpkin. The two other pages are full of eyes, noses, and other facial features for the Jack O Lantern.
There are several options for making many different pumpkin faces.
- the printable Jack O Lantern craft
- printer (to print in color too)
- cardstock paper
- safety scissors for kids
- glue or glue sticks
- paper plate (optional)
This is how to make the Jack O Lantern.
First of all, for the base pumpkin, kids can easily use a paper plate. Just let them paint it orange, air dry for a bit and then glue faces on.
Another option is to print out the whole pack and have them cut out the nice orange pumpkin first.
Then let their creativity go wild.
Kids can choose from the different eyes and mouths designs, cut them out, and glue them on their pumpkin. And voila! a sweet (or mean) Halloween Jack O Lantern face!
This activity works well in a classroom setting too. Especially in preschool and kindergarten with children who are working on their scissor skills.
