Jack ‘O Lantern Craft

When my oldest boys were younger I spent a lot of time crafting and creating with them.  Sometimes I feel a bit guilty because my youngest son doesn’t always get the same attention.  Life with older kids is very busy but I still try to take the time to do a fun craft or food with my boys for each holiday.  This Mason jar Jack ‘O Lantern Craft was easy to make and now we can enjoy it as a part of our Halloween decor.
