"Button Me" Jack-o-lanterns

It feels strange posting about Halloween in February, but here's what we did last October! :) We made "button me" jack-o-lanterns out of felt. They're so simple...and a fun skill-builder for kids. Just cut a pumpkin shape out of orange felt. Cut eyes, nose, and mouth from black or yellow felt, depending on whether or not your jack-o-lantern is "lit" or dark! Cut slits in the face pieces, and sew buttons in corresponding locations on your pumpkin shape. Viola! Halloween buttoning practice!
