Draw your jack-o’-lantern face with a black marker. I recommend keeping the eyes and nose above the middle so when it is folded you will have part of the face above the fold and the other part below.

Fold the paper in half  horizontally. Draw a horizontal line approximately 1 inch from the top.

You can free-hand cut if you like or draw lines about 1 inch apart. You want the lines to be pretty thin and fairy even.

Unfold the paper. The paper should have vertical slits along the middle. Glue the top and bottom of the paper to the toilet paper roll.

When you glue along the top and bottom only it will push the project out in the middle as the jack-o-lantern face strip of construction paper is taller than the tp roll.  Kids will start to get excited at this point as the project is starting to take a fun, silly shape.

Pumpkin Crafts for preschoolers

Halloween paper crafts

Cut two thin 1″ strips of the green construction paper that can be wrapped around the cardboard tube. One should be wider than the other with¬† a scalloped or triangular pattern on one horizontal side. Wrap around the cardboard roll and glue the narrower strip around the bottom of the toilet paper roll.
