HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEK!! This week I’ll be sharing some tips on how to make Halloween extra fun and as stress-free as possible. Today I’ll show you a cute way to Halloween-ize your kids lunch box–or alternately, you could use these to make your spouses lunch more spooktacular ;-). It’s a craft that you can make alone, or have your kiddos help with. Transform regular oranges into mini jack-o-lanterns in 3 easy steps!
Step 1: Take out a piece of paper and sketch your jack-o-lantern face onto the paper. You may want to google pictures of faces to help you with your design.
Step 2: Take a regular pen and carefully draw your design onto the surface of the orange. The brilliance of using a pen is that if you make a mistake, it can easily be removed with just a bit of water (or you can just lick your finger and swipe it off–hey, your kid is gonna be peeling them anyway. 😉 )
Step 3: Go over your design face with a black sharpie (I also used gold in the photo below but it didn’t pop as much as the black).
And viola’! Cute, easy, tiny pumpkins that are ADORABLE!!
Final quick tip: Try and find oranges that have slightly larger stems that stick out. Otherwise, you can cut a tiny piece of green pipe cleaner and gently drive it through the top.
