One thing that’s a Halloween tradition in our home is watching Spookley on Disney Jr.

We stumbled upon it by accident almost 8 years ago and have watched it every year since!

I’m pretty sure I’m going to make my kids watch it when they’re teenagers just because it’ll remind me of when were little.

Anyway, we made this paper plate Spookley the Square Pumpkin craft to celebrate Halloween and these fun memories.

It comes with a printable template that makes it super simple to create with your preschool, kindergarten and elementary aged children!

Watch our quick video tutorial or read our direction below to learn how to make at home.
