I could totally do this with money-- dollars on a pumpkin then popsicle sticks with bills and coins that add up to the amount. Addition/subtraction sorting - child needs to determine which sticks add up to the number on the bucket.
Flowers instead of bears. For this project, the children can use one to one correspondence to match the number of figures with the number noted on the paper. Having the dots color coded to match the figures in also very helpful and teaches colors.
