Creating a Jack O’ Lantern face is fun to make this Halloween. Since we’re not really celebrating Halloween in Suriname and we don’t carve pumpkins and eat candy corns here, I want Niko to have an idea what a Jack O’ Lantern and other Halloween-y things are. — And because I love Halloween. Hahaha!
CREATE A JACK O’ LANTERN FACE
THINGS WE USED:
Orange and black colored papers
Cut a pumpkin shape from the orange colored paper. I made at least three.
Cut out the nose, eyes and mouth from the black colored paper.
Separate the nose, eyes and mouth in different containers.
Place in a tray with the glue and serve to play.
When we’re starting the activity, I didn’t expect that Niko’s playmates will come to our house, so I invited them to join since I have three paper pumpkins on hand.
I explained to them that each boxes contains different parts of the face. I gave the box with the eyes first, let them pick a piece and glue it to their pumpkins.
They enjoyed it so much that they wanted to make more. I told them that they can put another face at the back of their pumpkin.
This activity is a hit for the kids, so I’m thinking of doing a similar activity on our Halloween party.
