Since we are working on shapes with Big Brother, I chose to do two of each of the following:
circle, square, rectangle, heart, oval, trapezoid, and 3 different sizes of triangles. By doing two of each of the shapes, you can do matching activities as you put the face on Mr. Pumpkin Head.
Also, I cut out a few different larger “shapes” to be used as mouths. I made them all slightly different styles–by doing this, you can work on reading emotions. Big Brother picked up right away on the “scary/angry” mouth!
With all those fun shapes and mouths, the various creative possibilities for building a jack ‘o lantern are nearly endless! 🙂
