My 3 year old loves puzzles and went right to work matching each shape puzzle.

To set up the activity, you will need to download and print the pumpkin shape puzzle cards.

Laminate for durability.

Cut each card in half to create a puzzle.  I cut the cards straight down the middle, however you could also cut the cards in zigzags, diagonals, etc!

shape puzzles

There are 10 pumpkin shape cards included in this free printable set; your child will practice recognizing a circle, square, heart, diamond, rectangle, oval, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, and octagon.
