Pumpkin Search


Precut ten pumpkin shapes from yellow paper, five pumpkin shapes from white paper, and five pumpkin shapes from orange paper. Let children draw a funny face on each pumpkin shape. Next write a 1 on each of the white pumpkins, a 2 on each of the yellow pumpkins, and a 3 on each of the orange pumpkins. When students are out of the room, hide all the pumpkin shapes. Invite students to search for pumpkins for a set amount of time. When time is up, help each child add up the numbers on the pumpkins they found. The person with the most points wins.
