Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • An old cardboard box
  • Scissors
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Orange, white, green and black tissue paper
  • Markers
  • Paintbrush

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Choose a Halloween-themed jack o’ lantern or ghost design.
  2. Flatten the cardboard box.
  3. Draw either an oval pumpkin or a free-flowing ghost shape onto the float board.
  4. Cut the shape out.
  5. Tear the tissue into smaller-sized pieces. Your child will need orange, black and green to create a pumpkin and white and black to make a ghost.
  6. Squeeze a small pool of glue into the cardboard. Use the paintbrush to spread the glue out across the board base.
  7. Crumble the tissue paper and press it onto the glue to create a textured surface. If your child wants to make a jack o’ lantern they can cover the bulk of the cardboard with orange tissue, Add black tissue for eyes, a nose and mouth. Finish the craft with a green tissue stem. To craft a ghost, cover the board with white tissue and add black for the eyes.
