Artists Helping Children provides instructions on projects such as using an old teacup to make a Halloween Jack-O-Lantern candle holder, how to make cookie cutter floating candles and gorgeous looking ice candles.
A jack-o-lantern lit from within using real or LED votives makes a great starting point, and can be combined with other elements such as small candles or miniature pumpkins.
Scented votive candles can be used in an autumn leaves wreath centerpiece, or may be inserted into a festive jack-o-lantern to cover any spoiling smell.
If you decide to carve a Jack-o-Lantern, have your child draw the outline of the design, but don't let them carve the pumpkin themselves.
Choose a long-sleeved black T-shirt with a bright orange jack-o'-lantern on the front and pair it with a pair of jeans for a little boy.
Time the event and give the players five minutes to tear a jack-o'-lantern out of the newspaper - no scissors allowed.
Consider hollowing out a pumpkin, much like you would do for a jack-o-lantern, but carve hearts instead of a face.
Some have smiling faces on them, and some are created with spooky Jack-O-Lantern faces, to better fit the holiday.
Once the Jack-o-Lantern has been carved, put a small flashlight inside instead of using a candle to light it up.
