I had a lot of pumpkin shapes left over from our Comparing Sizes with our big buddies.
So this week I set up an invitation to paint pumpkin faces.
The jack o'lanterns on the table were prompts to think
will my pumpkin be happy, sad, scary or?
While most of the children loved the painting,
the toddlers wanted
to explore the jack o'lanterns up close.
The first few faces that were painted were taped to our big
pumpkin in the middle of the table.
They started conversations about pumpkins at home,
where they got their pumpkins and if they have carved it yet.
