Scary vegetable monsters

We had to make vegetable monsters for a Halloween competition at school last week, so I took the opportunity to try and teach my youngest child the names of some vegetables and how to recognise the name when written down. We also tried a bit of weighing and measuring.

learning about vegetables

Can you guess how many conkers weighed as much as a fennel?


We made some signs and matched the vegetables to the correct sign.


Then we made our monster, although I think he’s quite cute.


Have you made a vegetable monster before? We’d love to see it.

Other ideas

How about making a vegetable shop to practice weighing and recognising different vegetables, a bit like our flower shop?

Practice weighing and measuring as you carve a pumpkin.
