Jazzy Jack o' Lantern

Jazzy Jack o' Lantern craft

Jazz up the fall with this unique pumpkin. Children become jacks of all arts as they create textured crayon rubbings, cut, glue, and draw their jack-o'-lanterns.

  • 1.

    Peel the paper wrapping off an orange Crayola® Crayon. Place a textured item such as plastic bubble wrap, dish mat, or rug back under a large piece of white construction paper to make a crayon rubbing. Rub with the side of the crayon over the entire paper to create a pumpkin's bumpy surface.

  • 2.

    Draw a large pumpkin shape to fill the paper and cut it out with Crayola Scissors.

  • 3.

    On another piece of construction paper, draw and color shapes for facial features or other designs. Cut out the shapes and attach them to your pumpkin with a Crayola Glue Stick.

  • 4.

    Jazz up your jack-o'-lantern by drawing eyelashes and other details. Glue on bits of shiny recycled paper for more variation.

  • 5.

    Draw, color, and cut out a pumpkin leaf. Tape the leaf and a chenille stick stem to the pumpkin.
