It’s that time of year again! Time to pick out your pumpkins and break out the carving supplies!
While we’ve got our pumpkins all picked out, we haven’t gotten around to carving them yet. The 4 year old however, did take it upon himself to draw faces on each and every one of them with a dry erase marker 🙂
He thought for sure that he was done with the whole carving process and his adorable little jack o’ lantern was all ready for the candle.
Of course, this is a common occurrence in our household, as I’m sure in many of your homes as well if you have a child with Autism, as he often forgets that there are often numerous steps involved in a process.
To help him remember the steps that go along with carving a jack o’ lantern as well as to show and teach our youngest how the process goes, I created this fun pumpkin carving sequencing activity.
From picking out the perfect pumpkin to placing the candle inside, the six printable cards in this set will take you and your little ones through the entire process of carving their Halloween masterpieces!
After you have the cards printed out, work with your child to determine the proper sequence for the steps involved.
This ended up being a lot of fun for my little guy and now he is even more excited about getting to actually carve his pumpkin this weekend. Hopefully your little ones will enjoy it just as much as mine have!
