Orange Jack o’ Lantern Kids Craft

pumpkin orange snack

Looking for a craft idea that is light on sugar but still sweet? Here’s a healthy Halloween craft that is a simple and fun activity for preschoolers: an Orange Jack-o’-Lantern. My 4 year-old made this project by himself with just a few words of instruction from me. If you have older kids, make this treat as a surprise for their lunchboxes. We made a box of these and sent them to school as class treats.

  5. Stick the curly stem into the top of the orange.
  • Make it with Preschoolers: Pre-cut nose and mouth and lay out materials for your preschooler. Verbally give him the instructions step-by-step and let him do it himself! You might need to demonstrate some of the steps, but let him try to do it alone first.
  • Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana: Use a banana (or other peel-able fruit) for a funny twist on the Orange Jack-O’-Lantern.
