My 3 year old loves puzzles and went right to work matching each pumpkin shape!


PUMPKIN SHAPE PUZZLES


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

Laminate for durability; not a deal-breaker, but with little hands, laminating the shape cards help them last longer!

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!
