After watching “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” a few nights ago – I thought it would be fun to have my daughter write a letter to “The Great Pumpkin”. Because she is not writing anything beyond her name at this point in time, I just had her write “letters” (whatever letter, and however many she wanted, all over the page) to the Great Pumpkin.
In turn, the Great Pumpkin brought her a gift the following day . . .
Yep, a shiny new toothbrush (apparently the Great Pumpkin strongly believes in Dental Hygiene).
If your child is too small to write letters, another option would be to cut out letters from magazines and have them paste the letters on a page.
We liked using this pumpkin shaped lined paper, but you could easily make your own pumpkin shaped paper for this activity.
