My inspiration for today's project came from Teach Preschool. You can check out her idea here.
I first cut out a whole bunch of orange circles. I tried my best to make them pumpkin-shaped but whatever, they are just odd shaped circles!
Anyway, then I did this to two of the circles.
Sam really liked this activity but did get frustrated that she couldn't draw the triangle correctly.
Then I drew complete faces on the rest of the pumpkins and cut them in half. Sam had to match up the faces. She liked this one a lot!
So, two pumpkin activities in one today! I didn't get a chance to try the second one out with Avery, but she has been so into puzzles lately that I am thinking she might understand it a bit. I will let you know how it goes!
The Nitty Gritty!
Okay, tonight I am linking to to posts that specifically deal with learning, puzzle, game or other pumpkin inspired activities. The craft links and pumpkin decorating ideas will come later this week, don't worry!
