For a fun Halloween activity for kids, try making giant Jack-O-Lanterns on the overhead project or designing miniature ones on the light table.

Halloween Light Play for Kids

Here's one more Halloween activity that we did.  This time we used the overhead projector to make some giant jack-o-lanterns.  However, as you will see, you can also do this activity on the light table.

To make the pumpkin, I cut an orange transparent duotang that I had leftover from these homemade light table manipulatives.  I also cut a green stem and taped it to the pumpkin shape.  Here's a close up of how it looks once it's projected with the overhead projector.

I then set out some craft sticks and black glass stones to decorate the pumpkins with.  You could use whatever you have on hand, including shapes cut from cardstock or construction paper.

J was really into making some funky looking jack-o-lanterns.

Afterwards, we tried making jack-o-lanterns on the light table.  The color is a lot more vibrant on the light table, but then you definitely miss out on the gigantic-ness of using the projector.
