Halloween Activities At Home, Practical Life Halloween Inspired Activities & Crafts

Ava thoroughly enjoyed spooning Halloween sprinkles into our pumpkin shaped ice tray.

We had great fun creating collages with lentils and beans. We purchased our pumpkin cutouts from the dollar store.

Our Creations

These are little pumpkin puzzles that I created using our foam cut outs.  These were so quick to make, and we loved them!!

We also did some hand sewing.  I cut out pumpkins from orange felt, and Xander chose buttons to sew on for the eyes and nose. He hand stitched the mouth.  I took two foam cut-outs and used a hole punch to make an easy to follow stitch pattern for Miss Ava.  
She also used orange embroidery thread to sew her pumpkins together.

Working very hard here 💕

So cute!

I hope you are all enjoying the season!

    1. I am sorry Lynn but I don't. I bought them at the dollar store. If you had orange foam you could just trace and cut them out. I cut the puzzles free form.
