Jack-o'-Lantern Faces Cut and Paste Crafts

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Paper crafts make terrific and simple Halloween decorations that even toddlers can help put together.  Children can design their own paper pumpkin faces to hang on bulletin boards or the refrigerator

There are options for "design your own" faces with different noses, mouths and eyes to mix and match or three pre-designed faces for children to cut and paste (for those with only one child who want to save a bit of time and paper).  My girls and I like the "design your own" option!
