How to Set Up Pumpkin Shapes Sticky Wall
Grab your orange construction paper and scissors. Cut three sheets of construction paper into three large squares. Fold it in half and cut out a square, triangle and circle outline.
Unroll and tape your contact paper and stick it up with the sticky side facing out. Stick the shape outlines on the contact paper. Create the stems out of green construction paper and stick them up on the contact paper.
Grab your foam shapes and sort of the circles, squares and triangles. For preschoolers, you can place them all into one bowl and let them sort them out on the contact paper.
For toddlers, sort the shapes into three separate bowls and have them place the correct shapes on the pumpkins.
My twins really enjoyed this activity but they absolutely love sticky walls so it was an easy sell. They love the stickiness of the wall which provides a wonderful sensory experience all on its own!
