Pumpkins, pumpkins, we love pumpkins!

I thought it would be fun to do a pumpkin theme this Fall and incorporate it into our homeschooling lessons.  Here are some of the fun things I found around the internet to do:

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

We wrote down adjectives to describe pumpkins:

Some creepy crawly sensory bins were made with waterbeads.  Not strictly on the pumpkin theme (although there were little pumpkins in it), but a good one to do before Halloween:

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 poked little pumpkins with pins, and stretched elastics in different designs around the pumpkins because, come on, how is that NOT fun??  At least until someone gets poked (which may, or may not have happened in this house....ahem....):

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!
