As much as fall is my favorite season, Halloween is my favorite holiday. Halloween is next week & we are looking forward to taking Mai trick or treating. I wanted to let her choose her own costume this year. I asked her several times & her answer has always been the same. “I want to be a Jack-o-lantern, mama.” Our daughter loves pumpkins & Jack-o-lanterns, so next week our daughter will proudly strut the streets as the cutest Jack-o-lantern ever to say “Trick or Treat”.
Until then, we can have a little fun making our Halloween crafts in anticipation.
You will need:
Jumbo shells (as used for stuffed shells)
You will need 1 piece of each of these pastas for each Jack-o-lantern
Orange & green paint
Paint the jumbo shells orange & the Farfalle & ziti green.
Let the pieces dry.
Glue the ziti piece into the shell as shown.
Glue the Farfalle piece over the ziti.
With a black sharpie, draw on your Jack-o-lantern face.
