The spooky fun contines with our collection of Jack O’Lantern Crafts for Kids! Many of these cute crafts, can also be created simply as “pumpkin crafts”, which also makes then suitable for Thanksgiving Crafting! But for now, let’s get Halloween Crafting.
Fun Jack O’Lantern ideas for preschoolers and kids
One of our first and most loved Jack O’Lantern Crafts where these recycled Jack O’Lantern Mason jars! They make fantastic Halloween Luminaries.. and 10yrs on, we still have these laterns and bring them out every year!
Another firm favourite Jack O’Lantern idea, are these super duper easy Jack O’Lantern Clementines/ Satusmas/ Oranges.. add them to any pack lunch or Halloween Tea Party in October. So fun and easy.
A super fun classroom activity or craft for the home come Halloween are these easy peasy Halloween stressballs. Do make sure you get a marker pen that doesn’t smudge… else your perfect Jack O’Lantern faces won’t be perfect for long!
Learn how to sew a pumpkin! Aren’t they cute? These are made from old t-shirts! I love that they make great Autumn/ Thanksgiving decor, but are also just perfect for Halloween too. Top tip: the smaller ones are easier to sew (it doesn’t take much sewing, but you do need to push the needle through from top to bottom).
Another super sweet and simple idea are these pumpkin photo collages. Aren’t they fun. You could easily add bas flying out of the pumpkins as well as some cute Jack O’Lantern Faces!
No collection “of” is complete, without a famous Corner Bookmark! They are so easy and fun to make.. and you literally can decorate them for all occasions.. Like we have done here with these easy Jack O’Lantern Bookmarks!
Super cute little Jack O’Lantern Printable mask! Support my work with this TPT download!
Yarn Wrapped Pumpkin garland – keep them plain for all of Fall or add your cute Jack O’Lantern Faces for Halloween!
We recycled some old orange tissue paper, made our natural papier mache paste and made some cool Jack O’Lantern lanterns! So fun! How cool would a whole set of these look hanging in your porch?!
A bit like the Satsumas above – never understimate the power of a simple Jack O’Lantern Face. I don’t know why Terry’s chocolate doesn’t make these commercially (yet!). Such a simple idea for Halloween. My lucky husband always gets one at Halloween!
The perfect Trick or Treating accessory – make this easy Paper Plate Pumpkin Purse! Too cute!
Another “2 for 1” idea for you – super simple little Pumpkin Pinch Pots – either as a Thanksgiving decoration or, add Jack O’Lantern features for Halloween!
For those of you that like all things mini… we made some super cute little Jack O’Lantern Cork decorations.
SImilarly Pumpkin Rocks, make great Fairy Door Accessories!
One year we made an adorable Halloween Treet with mini Halloween Treat Buckets made from TP Rolls! We made a whole set. Loved having fun with the Jack O’Lantern Faces!
If you find yourself facing a Pumpkin Shortage one year.. why not “carve” some Celementines or Satusmas? Ridiculously cute!
Any chance to finger knit and we will!! Try these cute Finger Knitted Jack O’Lantern decorations this year.
