Your child will jump for joy with this jolly jack-o-lantern mask you can make together!

You'll need:

  1. Invite your child to tear orange construction paper into small pieces.
  2. Help him spread paste or glue on a paper plate.
  3. Invite your child to place the orange paper pieces on the plate.
  4. Cut basic shapes - triangles, long rectangles, squares, and circles out of black construction paper.
  5. Encourage your child to help make a jack-o-lantern face using these shapes.
  6. Challenge him to glue these onto the orange paper covered plate.
  7. Carefully cut out eye holes.
  8. Add a Popsicle stick with tape for a handle.

How to use:

  1. Suggest your child dress in orange clothes and use this mask to pretend to be a jack-o-lantern.
  2. Invite your child to hold this mask to his face as you dramatize and dance to this song. (Tune: "Did You Ever See a Lassie?"):
    I am the great orange pumpkin, orange pumpkin, orange pumpkin.
    I am the great orange pumpkin. Come dance with me.
    For your friends are my friends, and my friends are your friends.
    I am the great orange pumpkin on Halloween night.
