Pumpkin Sensory Letter Hunt

What preschooler doesn't love a little ooey-gooey messy fun?! This afternoon I cut open our carving pumpkin and hid magnet letters inside during nap time. We took the pumpkin out on our back patio and had a ball searching for letters amidst the seeds and pumpkin pulp. Here's all you'll need to play today:

  • Pumpkin
  • Magnet letters
  • Bucket for ooey-gooey pumpkin insides

It was fun to have the letters already in the pumpkin so when MJ pulled the "lid" off they were a fun surprise! :) 

As she retrieved letters she would identify them.

When she was done she had a nice big pile of letters, a good review of letter names ....and pumpkin pulp up to her ears! If it's not messy than we're not having fun, right!?
