Pumpkin Precision

Wow! October already?? Can you believe it? We are entering into some fun learning times with autumn activities, apples, Halloween, pumpkins, spiders, bats, Thanksgiving, turkeys, Christmas and more! If you’re interested, I have been posting one FALL FUN Activity every day in October on my Facebook page, so check them out!

I’ve spent a lot of time this week researching and coming up with some great lessons for Caleb and Lily Anne for this month. Here is a cute one that I found from Teaching 2 and 3 Year Old’s Blog that Caleb has enjoyed!

You could do this several ways but below I have listed 2 activities that we have enjoyed so far…

You need: mini plastic pumpkins, Halloween rings, and tweezers

1. Place fun Halloween rings (spiders, bats, skeletons) on a table and have your child use the tweezers to pick them up and put them into a mini plastic pumpkin.

2. As a follow up activity, once your child has all the rings in one pumpkin, have him use the tweezers to transfer the rings from that pumpkin to another one. This was a slightly more difficult task especially with the spiders as you had to wiggle them to get them through the opening.
