I asked Jack to "plant" the pumpkins outside in one of our empty garden boxes. He was so excited to help out with this activity. Being outside + working with dirt = one very happy boy!!! The goal of this activity was to have Eve pull the pumpkins out of the ground or "harvest" them and identify the letter name and sound on each of her harvested pumpkins. Once Eve finished harvesting Jack arranged the pumpkins in alphabetical order onto a garden stake.
Here is one of the "pumpkins" showing the uppercase letter M.
