DIY Preschool: Pumpkins

     This is the first year that Big E is pretty excited about Halloween. She loves dressing up. She loves the pumpkin patch and carving pumpkins. She loves going to show her costume to the rest of the family. All the cousins have corresponding outfits to promenade to various houses. This year, they were all superheroes. We had Captain America, Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. Batman and Wonder Woman were super girly and glittery costumes complete with tutu's.

      Leading up to Halloween (and rounding out the rest of the week, actually) we focused on Pumpkins.There are so many activities to do with pumpkins that we have spent a couple of weeks on this theme. We have reviewed some of what we have already done, and learned a few new things too.
