Pin & Pound Pumpkins

Pin & Pound Pumpkins is a fun fine motor activity for the Halloween season! Do you know the website No Time for Flashcards?  Well, if you’re a mama and you don’t know it then go check it out now!  It is an awesome site.  No fancy frills and elaborate projects, just wonderful art and learning activities for kids.  The former elementary teacher in me swoons every time a new idea pops up in my inbox from them.  When I was working on my Halloween Kid Craft roundup I had to make a concsious effort not to ONLY use ideas from this website.  :)  When I was browsing the internet for pumpkin kid activities last week this one jumped out at me, and I wanted to give it a “spookier” twist.

This idea from No Time for Flashcards is simple and super fun.  It’s simply hammering buttons into foam pumpkins with nails.  It’s creative and it takes focus and develops fine motor skills.  I grabbed a couple of foam pumpkins from the Target dollar bins and some spooky-fab Halloween buttons from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores and my little guy hammered away excitedly for quite some time.  You can see our pictures below.  Give this fun activity a shot today!
