Meet Jack, the happy Jack O Lantern. He’s got a great big grin and triangle eyes that make him look so friendly.
His round white body and stem are ready for you to color. What wacky hair-do will you give Jack? How will you color his tongue?
You can use traditional orange and green, or maybe you want to try something different like purple and pink. You can print this free coloring sheet out several times and try different color schemes.

Here comes Sneaky the Jack O Lantern. He’s got a mischievous grin with pointy teeth. His glowing eyes look ready for some Halloween tricks.
You can make Sneaky sinister with blacks and purples, or give him yellows and oranges for a friendlier prankster.
Draw bats, spider webs, witches hats around him for an extra silly scene!
You can even draw some fire, smoke, or lightning behind the pumpkin to make the background look unique.
It’s time to go out into the cold night air for this jack o lantern printable. There’s mist in the night air, and I think that this would be another great picture to incorporate some thin white paint for a misty look to this image.
