Who said pumpkins have to be one particular shape? A great way to learn a variety of 2d shapes is with these fun Pumpkin Patch Shape Matching Mats. These mats can be used to help children learn to recognize the different shapes as they match the colored pumpkins to the ones in the pumpkin patch.

These pumpkin patch shape coloring mats are great for kids who enjoy learning about shapes. They can practice learning their shapes while building their fine motor skills by cutting and pasting the matching shapes. Make it reusable by using velcro dots.
