Halloween Jack-O-Lantern craft

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays, I love the fall as well and the season is not the same without Halloween!

To get into the Halloween spirit my little one and I decided to make a cute Jack-O-Lantern decoration for our home. We did our paper plate pumpkin at StrongStart and turned it into a Jack-O-Lantern at home. So much fun!
