What You’ll Need

2 paper plates | 1 popsicle stick | Black paint or marker | orange craft paint

Glow in the dark paint | Paint brush | Scissors | Stapler

What You’ll Do

To start this craft, have your child paint the outside/bottom of one plate orange. 

Once the paint dries, have them paint the inside/top of the orange plate glow-in-the-dark green. Set it aside again to dry. 

While that place dries, grab a second paper plate. Paint the outside/bottom of that plate black. 

Once your paper plates have dried, cut a scary/spooky face on your black paper plate. Draw a happy jack-o-lantern face on the orange side of the other plate. 

Staple the paper plates together with the craft stick in between. Now, your spooky jack-o-lantern will “glow” with the green paint. 

Your kids can use this craft to retell their favorite Halloween or pumpkin stories.
