Alphabet Pumpkins

For this activity you will need: a pumpkin, printed letters, something to stick them to the pumpkin with e.g. blue tack, glue or sellotape

Stick the printed letter sounds all over the pumpkin. You can then ask the child to find different letter sounds by asking them to identify the first, or last, letter sound within a series of spooky, Halloween-related words. (Several of these are easily decodable, such as ‘cat’, ‘broom’ or ‘bat’ which may be an extension activity.)

Alternatively, you can do this the other way around by asking children to pick a letter sound blindly which they must then say.
