We made these fun pumpkins one day and have been playing with them a lot lately.
We started by painting an egg carton orange.
Big Sister then helped me paint 12 golf tees a nice shade of green.
Egg Carton Pumpkins
I cut the pumpkins apart and we got busy playing! They went first into a fall sensory bin. Perfect for hiding in corn, counting, seeking, and exploring! I think we’ll be using our little pumpkins a lot this fall 🙂
