Teaching shapes while making fun pumpkin faces

Our favorite thing about Halloween is the pumpkins. "J' loves doing the pumpkin craving and picking out what to crave on the pumpkins, so I thought it would be fun to come up with a craft tied in with pumpkins.

So I picked up some felt pieces at the craft store and cut out a big circle in orange and then used black and cut out shapes and mouths.

"J" and "C" had fun making different faces with the felt piece.

This also is a great craft for little ones to learn different shapes. "J" knows his shapes, but "C" doesn't so when she would put a shape down I would say the shapes.

Easy and very inexpensive. Felt pieces are $.20 for a 8x11 sheet. I used 3 orange and 1 black

For the shapes I just used stuff to trace around the house.
