Jack-O-Lantern paper plate craft

Cute craft, super easy, and great for both my big kids! (33 months and 13 months)

Kenna painting her jack-o-lantern face with orange paint. (Little Man painted his when he woke up from nap, with his hands.)
I simply took a paper plate and drew a face on it. I asked for Kenna's input on what shape to make the eyes, nose and mouth.
I only give a little paint at a time, thank goodness! She decided the scrape and pour method was the way to go...

While her paint was drying, I gave her a piece of black construction paper to cut up into big squares. She is really good with scissors, so that was all the direction she needed. I painted with Little Man while she did this. I asked her to put her squares into the clear container.

Once the paint was dry, I cut out the facial features.
Kenna glued the black paper onto the back of the plates, completely covering up the cut-outs.  I added a stem, and then in a last minute creative moment, Kenna added some yellow dot stickers. 
Cute, cheap, easy.  Who could ask for anything more?!
