Making your Pumpkin Letter Puzzles
To make your pumpkin puzzles, fold 6 sheets of orange construction paper into four equal rectangles. Cut along the lines the cut out 24 mini pumpkin shapes. Cut out 24 small stems out the the green construction paper. Glue the green stems to the pumpkins.
Using your black sharpie, write the capital letters of the alphabet on one side and the lower case letters on the other side.
Take you scissors and cut between the two letters. Make cuts in different directions to create a variety of puzzle shapes.
Doing Your Pumpkin Puzzles
Place all the capital letters on one side of a table and the lowercase on the other side. Invite your toddler or preschooler to come and put the puzzles together. For toddler show them how to do this by doing one for them.
If you toddler is still learning their letters choose a few letters to focus on instead of doing the entire alphabet.
