We all know the song Five little pumpkins! And how much fun it is. Take the lesson to another level and add felt pumpkins for visual counting.
The activity is a complete lesson plan to learn a song; movements (see jbrary.com); craft, count and most importantly - child participation!
The pumpkins are easy to trace and create. I've aligned the activity to EYFS development for Early years. Older children will also enjoy the activity. (Especially cutting and decorating the pumpkins themselves.)

A fun activity for circle time. If you have the means - add a pumpkin seed planting activity outdoors. The children loves this. Enjoy!
