Yesterday we counted straws into these plastic pumpkins.
During this activity I couldn’t help but wonder what else you could do with these little plastic pumpkins.
Use the same format as pictured above but with rhyming words, word families, syllables, beginning/middle/end sounds, or money. The possibilities are endless!

I love these little pumpkins. I think we should try the spooning activity at our house. Thanks for the ideas.

I have a past post with lots of pumpkin ideas. In the middle of the post is a little game we played using the mini plastic pumpkins

I put one in Little man's Halloween Sensory Bin. He loved filling it up with beans and dumping it back in his bin. :) Great ideas!

You could use them to act out the "Five Little Pumpkins sitting on the Gate" rhyme.

another idea-Little Pumpkin Scavenger Hune
