Jack O'Lantern Fun

Disclaimer:  This post contains affiliate links to Amazon.com for your convenience.

Happy October 1st!  No, it's not a holiday (not that I'm aware of anyway), but I love the fall and all that it entails...cooler weather, leaves falling, apple picking, trips to the pumpkin patch, and Halloween!  The kid in me LOVES decorating for Halloween and even dressing up!  In the spirit of the season, I've created a fun Jack O'Lantern themed freebie for you:

In this packet, you will find:

Jack O'Lantern sequencing cards:

Five Little Pumpkins Song/Story Props:

(There's a fence too.  Print it twice to fit all of the pumpkins, attach together and laminate for a DIY folder)

Jack O'Lantern Barrier Game (or reinforcement activity, whichever you prefer):
There are large pumpkins...
 and face pieces (cut each shape out individually):

You can download this freebie HERE.

In case you missed it, I posted two Halloween freebies last year (Halloween Memory Match and Halloween I Have, Who Has).  You can find out more about those activities HERE.

One more thing...I love cutting Jack O'Lanterns and making pumpkin seeds, but I can't use food in my therapy sessions (district rule), so I like to make these:

I bought some of the craft pumpkins that you can carve from Michael's and added holes using a chopstick to correspond with each set I have (I got one pumpkin per "costume").  Now my kids can make fun Pumpkin heads without the mess!

What are your favorite Pumpkin/Jack O'Lantern activities?


  1. Love these freebies AND the great jack o lantern idea!!! Pinning now!

  2. That's a great idea to use the craft pumpkins!! I think I'll try that with potato head pieces...pinning now and going shopping later! Thanks so much for the freebie, too!! :)

  3. LOVE this activity! Thanks Carrie! Sharing on my FB page :)

  4. Thanks Carrie for sharing! MY favorite is a little song I had the kids act out:
    1 little, 2 little, 3 little pumpkins,
    sitting on on fence like country bumpkins.
    They fell off and bumped their rumpkins,
    one October day.

  5. Can I still get access to this? The link to it says it's no longer there.
