Busy Hallowe'en Week

We have had an amazing week at StrongStart. So many more children than normal came in to play.

We spread pumpkin butter on pumpkin pancakes for snack this week.

We carved a pumpkin to check out what was inside.

Then we made our own pumpkin showing on one side what the innards look like.

We made puffy ghosts using white glue and shaving cream. The paper was folded then opened, a blob of the puffy paint was put on one side then the paper refolded. The children smoothed down the paper (squishing the puffy paint inside). When they opened their paper they saw two ghosts. They added wiggly eyes.

We painted tuna cans to look like jack o'lanterns.

We shaved a pumpkin.

There was lots of hammering
being done to carve another

Red lentils and black beans in with bats and jack o'lanterns in the sensory table.

And earth worms to find when digging in the sand box.

To top it off we had fun singing "Knock, Knock, Trick or Treat" from Super Simple Songs

Hope everyone has a safe and fun Hallowe'en.
