Pumpkin, pumpkin big and round
I'm glad you grow upon the ground
For if you grew up in a tree
You might fall and land on me!
(the stuffed pumpkin bonks us on the head at the end- giggles all around!)
The sensory tub has been made a little spookier, filled with black beans; black and orange yarn pom poms; black, green, purple and orange sparkly pom poms and Halloween erasers.
This game allows Eva to practice her fine motor skills by pinching pom poms with tongs and placing them in a pumpkin ice cube tray. She also gets to make patterns with the colors.
Using a bunch of plastic pumpkins, Eva is able to sort them according to size. This is a favorite already!
Finally, I made a letter matching game by writing upper case and lower case letters on pumpkins left over from the calendar. I also found stickers of things that start with the letters.
Eva has to find the letters that go together and the picture that starts with the letter.
She did great with it and when Daddy came down from work, she dragged him over to play it again with her.
