Paper Plate Jack-O-Lantern Mask

What could be simpler craft than a Paper Plate Jack-O-Lantern mask for kids to make for Halloween trick or treating!


Orange Paper Plate
Green Yarn


Using a paper plate, mark with a pencil where your childs eyes, nose and mouth are by putting the plate up to the childs face.

Once you have marked the eyes, nose and mouth, you can make them any shape you like and cut them out.

Have the child paint the front of the mask a bright orange. After letting it dry, punch two holes on the sides of the mask ( one on each side at about ear level) and tie green yarn though the holes to tie it around the childs head.
