I made pumpkin pie scented playdough, put out some things to attach to the playdough for fun, and away they went!

We filled out a pumpkin observation sheet before we carved the pumpkin (into an angry bird face of course!), describing it and guessing how many seeds there were in it:
We painted little white casper pumpkins:
And of course we read stories about pumpkins. Tomorrow we will end our pumpkin theme with some baking: pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. And then the kids will go trick or treating and eat insane amounts of sugar before I try to put their little excited selves to bed. All in all, a great two weeks of pumpkin fun!
