Pixel Art Pumpkins with Pages

October is always a fun time of year with so many Halloween-themed activities - like pumpkin carving, but then there's the cleanup! Why not try a digital Jack O’Lantern activity that blends creativity and iPad, but without the mess. 


I always loved seeing what students would create and how elaborate their scenes would become. And I also loved how this project uses Pages on iPad from start to finish.

Students being by designing their Jack O'Lantern using the Drawing Tools. 

  Then recreate their design in a Pixel Art style using Conditional Formatting (still in Pages).

 And they finish it off with a frame of their choice before sharing with family and friends! 

You can download your copy of the workbook here.

I can’t wait to see what your students create!
