We couldn’t wait to start Halloween crafting! This Paper Plate Crayon Resist Jack-O-Lantern Craft is so quick and easy, we’ll be making plenty of them between now and the day of Halloween.
Have you tried crayon resist watercolor painting yet? It’s a really fun way to paint, and the end result is always a surprise because you normally use a white crayon. However, for this craft and for little ones, we also used a color crayon called Sandy Beach. It’s a really light tan color. That way the kids can see the face they’re creating, and the result still turns out the same.
To make our Paper Plate Crayon Resist Jack-O-Lantern Craft you will need regular white paper plates, watercolor paints, and either a white or very light colored crayon. Three supplies, it doesn’t get any easier!
Paper Plate Crayon Resist Jack-O-Lantern
- Paper plates
- Light colored crayon
Begin with a dinner sized regular white paper plate.
Draw a jack-o-lantern face with the crayon, either a very light color or white, in the center of the paper plate.
Now get your watercolors ready. Begin painting the plate, including over the crayon, with the orange watercolor.
We mixed just a touch of red with ours to make a deeper orange color.
This craft is so simple and fool-proof! It makes such a great way for even the littlest ones to have fun decorating for the Halloween season!
