A family tradition that has been carried over from our childhoods is carving pumpkins each year at Halloween. It’s a little early for us to carve pumpkins yet this year and make jack a lanterns, but that does not stop us from creating cute jack a lantern crafts.

Do you remember that puffy paint bat we did a couple of weeks ago? We used the same process for this puffy paint jack a lantern kid craft.
- Shaving cream
- School glue
- Orange paint or food coloring
- Sponge paint brush
- Plastic lid
- Black foam paper
1. Make puffy paint by mixing equal parts shaving cream and glue. Mix in orange paint or food coloring until reaches the desired color.
2. Use paint brush and dad/glob paint onto plastic lid applying it thickly.
3. Cut jack a lantern face from black foam paper and apply to lid right away.
Note: It will take several hours to dry completely. We let ours dry overnight.
