Paper Roll Jack-O-Lantern Kid Craft – Halloween Fun

We carved a cute pumpkin this week for Halloween and put a little tea light in it. L was very excited to pick a pumpkin and make a jack-o-lantern. That gave me the idea to do another jack-o-lantern kid craft.

I have seen lots of cute jack-o-lanterns, so we decided to make this paper roll jack-o-lantern kid craft. This craft is not hard but does require some patience in how many paper rolls you need. It is similar to the art of paper quilling.

This is an easy and fun jack-o-lantern kid craft using just a few supplies. Create this paper pumpkin patch kid craft with a pair of scissors, glue, and paper for some Halloween fun.

Pair this paper jack-o-lantern kid craft with a book for some reading and creating fun. Try The Itsy Bitsy Pumpkin
