A really simple but fun activity for all ages! This sensory tray gives children the opportunity to explore the pumpkins. The smell and texture. It’s a great chance to talk about seeds and how they can be planted to make new pumpkins! You could even roast them and make a little snack!
I gave the children some safety knives and pumpkin carving knives and scoops so that they could practice their cutting skills and scooping out the insides.
Today’s play meets the following EYFS areas:
- Physical development
- Communication and language
- Understanding the world
- Expressive Art and Design
