I love this pumpkin shape craft because it is fun for all ages. My two-year-old gets a chance to work on shapes and sorting while having fun and my five-year-old is inspired to get creative making jacko-lantern faces with his shapes.
Cut out different shapes from black construction paper. We used circles, squares, and triangles. The shapes don't have to be perfect. Let your child trace and cut them out himself or have your older child use a paper puncher like we did to prepare all of the shapes. (This was my five-year-old's favorite part of the project.) We also talked about how you can cut squares diagonally to make triangles.
