Spooky Pumpkin Collages

spooky pumpkin collages

Collages are an open-ended activity where children can be creative with just about anything. These Halloween pumpkin collages are made from materials other than paper. I provided small scraps of fabric, felt, ribbon, and other goodies. Use your imagination and look through your art supplies for a variety of things that can be glued.

It is best when children are able to use the items they select to decorate their pumpkins as they see fit. Some young learners will cover their entire pieces; other will not. Some may use only one color, while others may enjoy using and mixing all of the elements.

Spider Web Counting Activity

spider web counting activity

Let’s get spooky and count some spiders! This spider web counting game is a wonderful way to strengthen number sense. By placing a numbered group of spiders on its corresponding web, children demonstrate number quantity knowledge – the understanding that the written number “5” means five objects. Furthermore, this activity helps to develop counting, one-to-one correspondence, and number recognition skills.

So collect some creepy crawlers and download our free numbered spider webs! For heavy use, I recommend printing on cardstock and lamination.
