After doing crafts with children for a while you learn that very few things attract a kid's attention like a bowl full of colored sand. This is a wonderful craft to make with children of all ages. Our daughter loved playing in the sand which makes this a great sensory activity. She also enjoyed carefully spooning the sand into the container which made this a fun fine-motor skill game as well. We added a funnel to the craft for even more fun. This craft does have a bit of a mess associated with it, but we think it's worth it in the end!

What You'll Need

STEP 1

Paint the lid to the baby food jar green. We found it easiest to dab the paint on - it's not the easiest surface to paint.

STEP 2

Draw the face of your jack-o-lantern onto the jar using the marker.

STEP 3

Fill the jar with sand. You can use all orange or...

STEP 4

All the fall colors to add a little pattern to it. A spoon and a funnel make this fun.

STEP 5

Screw the lid back onto the jar. Cut a leaf out of green paper or foam and glue it to the top of the jar.
