Today I'm sharing a favorite Halloween activity from our popular Fine Motor Fridays series! It's a cool little printable to use for preschool Halloween games!
I like this Halloween printable because it can be used a few different ways. It is great for working on visual scanning skills as well as beginning writing skills.
When I first thought of this little game I thought it would be fun to use the rings from some orange juice bottles we had to frame the faces to make the pumpkin.
The same day I made the worksheet, my preschooler's teacher sent home an apple tree worksheet that said my daughter needed to practice tracing circles. I thought, hey wait a second….we could do that on our pumpkins worksheet too!

Preschool Halloween Games to Play
Once you print out the worksheet, we found a few games to play with it. If you think of any others let us know!
Frame a Face- Use an orange juice or milk ring, a rubber band or other small circle to slide around the sheet and find as many faces as you can! You can also describe the faces to find, such as “Can you find a face with one tooth and no nose?”
Circle Stencil- Use an orange juice or milk ring, a rubber band, small cookie cutter, stencil or other small circle to slide around the sheet and find pumpkin faces and use the circle as a stencil to trace circles around the faces.
Freehand Circles- Use an orange crayon to draw freehand circles around the pumpkins.
Counting & Sorting- Once you have drawn circles around the faces, count up how many there are of each style face. You can use tally marks in the page margins.
Connect the Pumkins- Circle each style of pumpkin face with a different color. When you have circled them all, use the corresponding color to draw a line connecting all the matching pumkpins.
