First of all I made a pumpkin patch. I painted an egg carton green, filled some orange balloons with flour and drew on a jack-o-lantern face. We used the pumpkin patch for one to one matching. This is an important skill for learning to count and use numbers. Sweet Girl learned to place one pumpkin in one hole. Plus it was a great sensory activity! Sweet Girl had so much fun squeezing them. At one point she started picking them up with her toes, and I thought “She truly is my daughter.” My family has been blessed with long toes for picking things up. It comes in handy sometimes.
