Healthy Jack O Lantern Halloween Snack 


We started todays activity by singing 'Five Little Pumpkins'. Five Little Pumpkins is a lovely story/ song to introduce toddlers and preschoolers to the idea of Halloween. After singing the song a few times we had a go at designing our own little pumpkins using oranges. 


We used a black sharpie to draw different jack o lantern faces onto the oranges. We had fun talking about which faces were scary, sad, happy etc.

I had set this activity up for Daisy (aged 3) but Harry (aged 6) wanted to get involved too creating his own spooky jack o lantern. I only had 5 oranges ready for this activity but the children would have happily designed a whole bag of them.

The best bit about this activity was that it made a very healthy and yummy snack for us to eat after our hard work.
