Pumpkins for Toddlers

ages 2-4


Pumpkin, felt, scissors, double sided sticky tape or other adhesive.

Activity Detail

After your toddlers have picked out their perfect pumpkins, have them create their own jack o' lanterns using pre-cut felt shapes. Cut out various shapes of noses, eyes and mouths and let your child decide which ones to put together to create the perfect face. If you use double sided sticky tape to adhere the felt to the pumpkin, the felt pieces can easily be removed. As an added bonus, with this method of decorating the kids can change the face each day! You can use black or yellow felt depending on the look you want.

My two year old and my five year old will both love this activity. It gives us a good opportunity to discuss feelings as well.

This is so fun! You can also make different mouth expressions to discuss emotions. Is your pumpkin happy? Put a smile on his face. Sad? Put a frown.

What a great idea for young children to decorate their jack-o-lantern over and over again!
