Kindergarteners’ Paper Jack-o’-Lanterns in Teacher’s Video Delight Internet

Construction paper lanterns made by a kindergarten classroom are delighting the viral TikTok internet — even if the kids don’t exactly follow the example.

The video begins with an example of a jack-o’-lantern made by @ashanngraf to show young students what they are going to make – a smiling pumpkin made of strips of orange construction paper on a black background, with a full wide-eyed goof-a smile.

The rest of the video was featured on the cover of the classic Earth, Wind and Fire “September” that played poorly on tape recorders, showing less-than-ideal but still great results. The children’s versions may not have spaced the orange strips evenly or may have a lot more teeth than expected, but they were still delightful.

Although paper lanterns are delightful, actual pumpkins are the norm — and real Jack-O-Fantern has been at the center of TikTok trends before. In the past year, the trend has seen people carve pumpkins with electric washers. This carving technique gives a less straight and more natural appearance – with the added benefit of letting soapy water and the inner parts of the pumpkin through the newly created mouth.

“I always tell people so realistically it’s a rotten piece of squash. Don’t twist it. However, everything lasts on social media,” said Pumpkins.

And once Halloween is over – the jack-o’-lantern can become compost, bird feeder, or treats for local zoo animals.
