A few weeks ago, we had a little crafting activity via http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/jar-o-lanterns-1024695/. Some old spaghetti sauce jars, pickle jars, and jelly jars, painters tape, and a lot of orange paint later - and we had these little guys.
|James clearly didn't want to wait for directions....|
They do look pretty neat - of course I don't have a picture of the final product with the tape peeled off, sitting on the kitchen table, and the lights out with candles aglow inside - so you'll have to use your imagination.
The kids had fun, I had fun, and dinnertime with kids and candles is always something to be treasured.
