This sweet poem and craft idea will some fun to any afternoon or small group activity.
The poem is so fun to say and play using the pumpkins you will make and it’s even more fun to decorate your pumpkins!
A fun take on the Treasure Hunt game. Each child gets a copy of the page to color; a map if you will.
The caregiver/parent/teacher places the picture cards around the room/house. The children color each picture as they find it.
Ideas for easier use: Give children the color page on a clipboard and allow them to circle the items first, then color them when they get back to their seats. Or give them a few crayons (pick certain colors of the day) to carry with them to color as they find their pictures.
I have included 2 sizes of mats here. The first size (Large) is for the Toddlers and younger Preschoolers. The smaller size is for older Preschool age and above. If your child feels comfortable using one versus the other, by all means use what they feel most comfortable with.
These are great tools to get those creative juices flowing in your beginning writers!
Cut out the story cards, have them put the cards in order of what happens first, second, third and last. Your child can either tell you a story of what is happening or older children can write a sentence for each card.
