To put our new DIY flannel board to good use, we decided to get in the Halloween spirit with a pumpkin song and pumpkin felt story board. I thought we could use our felt board to practice counting and explore the concept of size. This is a fun fall toddler and preschooler activity!
For this activity you will need:
- Flannel board
- Felt Pumpkins
- Teaches counting and numbers
- Explores size concept by using “small” and “big” pumpkins
First we started off by singing the “10 little pumpkins song”
One little, two little, three little pumpkins
Four little, five little, six little pumpkins
Seven little, eight little, nine little pumpkins
Ten little pumpkins growing in a patch.
Ten little, nine little, eight little pumpkins
Seven little six little, five little pumpkins
Four little, three little, two little pumpkins
One pumpkin growing in a patch!
Over and Over and Over- well you get the picture
Then we grabbed our felt pumpkins and we sang the song again adding pumpkins as we go.
