Mini Shapes Cookie Cutters (affiliate link) (If you don’t have any your kiddo could use scissors or a plastic knife to cut out shapes)
1. On a paper write 3-4 shapes in a line that you have cookie cutters for.
2. Have child roll dice, write the number next to the first shape, and make that many shapes out of playdough. Continue until all the shapes have been made.
3. Have child use shapes to create a jack-o-lantern. Play and Repeat :).
