Halloween Preschool Crafts are a fine art … a careful blend of fun, education, and independence. Well this one has it all! Sammy and I made Pumpkin Name Puzzles and we had a lot of fun – cutting, matching, and gluing.
I have mentioned before that I really feel preschool crafts need to take more time for wee ones to complete then Mama’s or Teachers to prepare. And this one fits the bill!
Halloween Preschool Crafts: Materials
- Orange construction paper shaped like a pumpkin. Draw ‘ridges’ and write your wee ones name
- One more piece of construction paper to assemble the pumpkin name puzzle onto.
Creating a Pumpkin Name Puzzle!
This very simple Halloween Preschool Craft has wee ones practicing three skills: cutting, matching (or spelling), and gluing
Have your wee one cut on the pumpkins ‘ridges’. I always say to my Sammy, “Thumbs Up!” while he is cutting – reminding him to hold the scissors properly.
Lay out your puzzle pieces to show your wee one what their completed puzzle will look like. Then mix them up!
Next, I had Sammy find each letter to his name and place them in order. I reminded him that his puzzle will look like a pumpkin.
After we glued it all down.
Finally Sammy decided we needed a stem.
He had a lot of fun cutting those stems! I think we ended up with 12 to choose from. The boy loves to cut!
Halloween Preschool Crafts can be so much fun for wee ones. It is always wonderful to bring learning to life – and this is done so easily with Holiday crafts.
