The Last of Our Pumpkin Fun

I love pumpkin week and we've all had a lot of fun with our pumpkin projects! After "gutting" the pumpkin on Wednesday, we reviewed what we found in the pumpkin on Thursday, then made cute "What's Inside" pumpkin projects!

Yesterday we also finished carving our pumpkin, with everyone giving input as to what his face should look like. I think he turned out adorable!

We've been learning some silly pumpkin songs and poems this week. One of our favorites is Five Little Pumpkins. It goes like this:

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.

The first one said, "Oh my, it's getting late!"

The second one said, "There's a chill in the air."

The third one said, "But we don't care!"

The fourth one said, "We're ready for some fun!"

The fifth one said, "Let's run, run, run."

So, whooo went the wind and out blew the lights and the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

Today we made pumpkin cookies - using canned pumpkin in the recipe and then shaping them like pumpkins and giving the jack-o-lantern faces, as well. Too cute! And the best part - snacking on them after lunch!

Next week - lots of Halloween fun!
