If you are looking for a great Halloween craft for Kindergarten you are in the right place today. The kids had a great time decorating their jack-o-lantern with glitter and markers. It sounds kind of funny, but smooth wood is a great canvas for markers. It glides on very smoothly.
Both of my kids have been painting a lot lately so we switched it up a little, and had a great kick off the Halloween and Autumn season.
This year in particular I plan to celebrate my butt off with anything that I can celebrate. We will be doing all sorts of Fall and Holiday crafts and I’m really looking forward to it.
I hope you enjoy!

Jack-o-Lantern Art Materials
2. I use paint tape to hold the paper down because it comes up easy and doesn’t leave residue behind.

Wood Craft Painting Setup
1. I started by spreading the white plastic table cloth and taping the edges to the table so the paper wouldn’t move.
2. Next I put all the supplies together on the table and also put down a poster board to catch the extra glue and glitter.
I honestly try to stay away from glitter but the kids love it so much lol. So every once in a while I take out the glitter and pray for my sanity 🙂
3. I let the kids know that we would color the wood with the markers first, then we would use the glitter. I had to say it a few times but it makes the activity go so much more smoothly!
4. After coloring I allowed them to be creative! I helped to guide them and give them ideas, and they ran with it.
5. We started with squiggly lines using the glitter glue, then we used regular glue and sprinkled more glitter on top of the glue.
6. Make sure you save the glitter for reuse!
