Do you celebrate Halloween?
Since I lived in Ireland for a few years, we became big fan of Halloween! This is my daughter's first Halloween costume! She was nearly 1 year old!
However when my children were little, under the age of 6, I was focusing on only some aspects of the celebration. We explored pumpkins and the typical animals related to the celebrations. I stirred away from the fantasy based and scary aspect of the celebration to start with.
As it was all around us, we couldn't avoid the question so I explored the topic nearly every year at home and in the classroom.
Here some of the activities we have done along the years:
We started to explore the orange colour and to explore pumpkins:
Sorting by size: small and big pumpkins
Transferring with a sieve:
Cards and counters:
I personally prefer to paint the pumpkin than carving it:
This year, I made a few free printables for you to use!
