ABC Pumpkin Match

Halloween Countdown #18 - Learning Activity

LM had a friend over today, so we played a little game together for our Learning Activity. It was something we thought up on the fly. I cut out a pumpkin using construction paper, and wrote all the letters of the Alphabet on it. I cut out matching Alphabet stickers I had on hand and I had them fish for them.

I tied a clothespin to a big kitchen spoon with a piece of yarn for the "line," and one at a time they would throw the line over a blanket on our kitchen chairs and fish for a letter sticker. Then they would match the sticker to the letter on the pumpkin.

It was pretty easy, and the boys had a lot of fun!

So fun! Those spur of the moment ideas are the best. We've done something like this before but I think the pumpkin shape makes it more interesting. I think I'll try it today!

What a fun way to reinforce letter recognition. I like how you created this activity with a Halloween theme.

This is a fabulous idea. I don't have any alphabet stickers, so I'll probably just use magnetic letters and do it on the fridge.
