We did this last month, too. We cut out a big construction-paper orange pumpkin. We used other pieces of construction paper to give the pumpkin different shaped eyes, noses, and mouths. We used tape so the pieces could easily be removed and replaced and put back on later. We made happy faces and sad faces. We taped on different combinations of mouths and eyes and noses to see what it looked like. She loved it. She especially loved changing the emotions of the face. It was interesting for me to notice that when the pumpkin felt certain emotions - like, when it was sad - she wanted to put it in time-out. It became quite a game for her. The connections she made between emotions and 'time-out' were interesting to note.
We also cut out a "p" for pumpkin and reviewed its sound.
