There are at least 3 ways to play with this free jack-o-lantern template.

1. Create a felt jack-o-lantern

You can create an interactive felt Jack-o-lantern. All you will need are 4 Pieces of felt (1 orange, 1 yellow, 1 black, & 1 background color), fabric glue, tape, & scissors.

Use your Jack-O-Lantern Printable as a template to cut out your shapes, attach with a tape roll to your felt, and cut out. Attach the shapes together with some fabric glue so they are reversible. Let dry overnight. Mama K created this fun felt background for our kiddos. Just take the glass out of a frame and replace it with a piece of felt!Free Jack-O-Lantern Template can be used for felt, cardstock, or traced.

2. Create a construction paper jack o lantern

While the felt pieces were drying I realized that J had been playing with the paper pieces for a while. So for quicker play, you can print the jack-o-lantern template onto colored cardstock or construction paper. Cut out pieces and play!

3. Design your own Jack-0-Lantern

Last J decided to use the pumpkin outline as a jack-o-lantern design sheet. Instruct your little one to either trace the shapes through the paper or draw on anything their imagination desires!!Free Jack-O-Lantern Template can be used for felt, cardstock, or traced.

The best part is you can print it as many times as you want! Ready to get your printable?
