Eight jack-o-lanterns (4 per page) to cut out and make fun flashcards about emotions. Emotions depicted are: excited, happy, surprised, scared, sleepy, mad, sad, and shy.
Use as a socio-emotional activity with young children, or as inspiration for creative writing, or more. With my class of 2.5-year-olds, we talked about how we thought that the pumpkins looked and discussed different emotions, and then each child chose a pumpkin card and try to make a face depicting that emotion. I took their picture making the face and holding the card, and they were some of the best pictures, ever!
