I probably should not have attempted this pumpkin wreath when Daddy was home, because the Bibliophile just kept running away to play with him instead. I thought it would be a nice craft for his age level. I let him color a paper plate orange (paint would be prettier, but he chose markers). Then I cut out a bunch of mini pumpkins and put out some craps of paper and do-a-dot-markers to decorate them with. Honestly, he wasn't very interested. I just ended up doing a lot of the pumpkins myself in attempts to catch his interest. He was excited to write "BOO" on some, and then really cracked himself up by writing "BOP" instead.
Thanks to a Tiger Tales give-away that we won, we enjoyed reading Five Little Pumpkins together quite a few times this week.
We also went to a playgroup where another mom had spraypainted pumpkins with chalkboard paint ahead of time, and set them out with chalk for the kids to decorate. All of the kids (ages 1-3) enjoyed it.
Other pumpkiny fun we've been up to:
- Homemade pumpkin muffins.
- Roasted pumpkin seeds
- Pumpkin patch / corn maze (see post here)
- Decorating mini pumpkins from a local farm (post here).
I am linking this post up with Tot Tuesday, Kids Get Crafty, ABC and 123, STart, Homeschool Village, and a Crafty Soiree.
Comment! What pumpkin-related crafts have you done this year?
