Happy Halloween

Hanging Pumpkin

Many people don’t celebrate Halloween and just as many people do – I for one am one of those people who do. I decorate my house inside and out; carve many many pumpkins; fill the lolly jar and of course dress up!

For my little charges I created a craft experience where counting is involved as well as colour and shape recognition – Hanging Pumpkins. We teared sheets of orange paper and glued them to small round paper plates, stuck on googly eyes, cut out leaves and twirled a pipe cleaner or two for the stork.
