DLTK's Crafts for Kids:
Soda Bottle Jack-O-'Lantern Craft
"I love your site and wanted to thank you for all the goodies that you provide. I also wanted to share with you the jack-o'-lanterns that we made this week in our 3/4 year old preschool." Charlene
Thanks to Charlene for taking the time to share this craft idea with us!
Look for a Frankenstein variation of this craft below.
- 2 liter soda bottle, with label removed.
- orange paint.
- self stick felt (need to pre-cut beforehand).
- green regular felt cut in circles ( about 3-4 inches).
- Pour paint inside the bottle add a little water, put the lid on and let the kids
swoosh it around to distribute it all around the bottle.
- Pre-cut eyes, noses and mouths and let the kids choose which ones they wanted to stick on their bottle.
- Add the green felt circle to the lid and tied the twine around it with a bow.
"The kids had loads of fun making this one!" Charlene
I'm Lisa and I'm the leader of Junior Girl Scout Troop and Brownie Troop. I wanted to share a "twist" we added to the 2 liter "Jack-o-lantern" project for our older Junior Girls.
Turning the 2 liter bottle upside down, the girls painted the top (outside of the bottle) and about 2 inches down ,black. we then added green tempra paint to cover the inside of the bottle. we glued on 2 empty thread spools (painted black) towards the bottom of the bottle.
The girls added pre cut "Frankenstein" pieces to the bottle ( eyes, scar, etc). They tied black raffia to the bottom to make a bow. These made the coolest Frankensteins ever, and the bottom of the bottle kind of looks like a brain anyway...LOL. Hope you share this, its a nice companion piece to the jack-o-lanturn, but for older girls!
