Early Years

Pumpkin Seed Shapes

The Nursery and Pre School children have been using pumpkin seeds to make shapes. They have been developing their fine motor skills by carefully picking up the seeds and placing them around the different shape templates. The activity required the children to stay focused if they wanted to complete the whole shape! The children were very impressed when they lifted the shape to reveal their carefully placed seeds. This activity also provided lots of counting opportunities and comparing of amounts, as well as requiring sharing and working together.
