|Felt Pumpkins Cutout Project|
We sing the song "5 Little Pumpkins" to go along with this activity (see below)! Charlie just loves it and it keeps him quite busy as he rearranges all of the faces and sings along. I use my microfiber couch as a makeshift felt board, which seems to work out very well until I have time to make a real one! This activity can be altered for any holiday or season by just cutting out a turkey with some colorful felt feathers for Thanksgiving or a giant felt Christmas tree for Christmas with some felt ball ornaments and so on.
"5 Little Pumpkins"
5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first one says, 'oh, my it's getting late!'
The second one says, 'there's witches in the air!'
The third one says, 'well, I don't care!'
The fourth one says, 'let's run and run and run!'
The fifth one says, 'I just want to have some fun!'
Whoosh, went the wind and OUT went the lights and the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
I hope some of these ideas are helpful to you on those not-so sunny, warm days. I am sure they will bring a big sunny smile to you and your little one as you spend some quality time together having fun!
