Jack O’ Lantern Corner Bookmarks (Easy Pumpkin Bookmark)

Jack O'Lantern Bookmarks

We decided to make these Jack O’ Lantern bookmarks to go along with a Halloween book we read and enjoyed a lot.

The book in question is Jack O’ Lantern’s Scary Halloween by Robert Kraus, which is a great book for young children. It narrates, in a not-spooky way, how Jack and his friends spend Halloween.

But if your children are older, say 3rd grader or more, you can read The Story of the Jack O’Lantern by Katherine Tegen. It explains the Halloween traditions in a darker way and has beautiful illustrations.

I recommend reading one of those books before making these papercrafts.

These pumpkin bookmarks are also the perfect Halloween classroom activity since you only need a few supplies, and can be easily transformed into a Harvest time craft by making your own “cute” cardstock faces and gluing them on top!

And if you’d like to transform it into a Thanksgiving craft, as I mentioned before, simply draw a happier mouth on black cardstock, cut and glue it on top of the scary one.
