Halloween Learning Activity: Head Vs. Jack O'-Lantern

This Halloween, challenge your preschooler to guess which is bigger: his head or your pumpkin. Then, help your child take a long piece of string and measure both his head and the pumpkin, and find out if he was right. Use this as an opportunity to teach your child about the concepts of -- and applications for -- inches, circumference, and estimation.
