Several Pumpkins - can use real or carvable fake ones
For our purpose, we chose the fake so it could be stored
To increase your sensory experience (tactile, olfactory, motor planning, proprioceptive, etc.) use real pumpkins including scooping out the inside
Safe Pumpkin Carving Kit
Hot Wheels Straight and Curved Track with connectors
Hot Wheels Cars
Help draw features on the pumpkins for you and our child to carve
We suggest you use easy shapes
Remember you need shapes large enough for the rack and car, also you need entrance and exit points
You can make your track as long and use as many pumpkins as you like
Pumpkins are arranged from highest to lowest on stairways or in hallways by stacking up with boxes
Have your child help snap the track pieces together and MOTOR PLAN how to assemble the track in and out of the pumpkins
Have your child start by placing car on the track of the first and highest pumpkin and watch it go through the course!
Thanks to a similar idea we saw, we decided to try it out and bring this fun sensory idea to you!
