Pumpkin Puzzles

Using real pumpkins, let the children draw faces with washable Crayola markers. The ink will wipe off easily with a wet cloth. After a few days, you can make a pumpkin puzzle or "shape sorter."

Open the top of the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds. Let the children help!

Cut a good sized square, circle, rectangle, heart, and triangle out of the pumpkin. Allow the children to find the correct hole to put their piece back into the pumpkin!

  1. Some are easy; some are hard. All of them are addictive! And when you assemble the puzzle pieces, you'll be left with photographic images of some of the clever pumpkin displays devised by folks in the Farmington area. riddles
