Pumpkin game for preschoolers
Pinterest (of course) and thought it would be a fun game to play in my evening stortyimes this fall. The dice (snatched from the blocks in the kid's section of the library) has a pumpkin on every side. Each pumpkin has an eye or a nose, or a mouth. Kids take turns rolling the dice and putting the face together on their pumpkin. There are two pumpkins on the dice that are plain pumpkins. If a child rolls the plain pumpkin they have to put one piece of their pumpkin face back. The game continues on until someone has a pumpkin with two eyes, a nose, and mouth. Pumpkins and face pieces were all made out of felt. I used clipart to print out six pumpkins and added the facial feature on the individual pumpkins. I cut the pieces and mod podged them to the wooden block.
