|M is 3 2/3 years old|
|R is 23 months old|
I was lucky enough to find another pocket of time this week where M woke up from her nap before R to do some of our printables. We usually do them at the kitchen table but she chose to do them hanging out on our living room floor instead. We didn't get to finish all our printables before brother woke up, but since she works on similar things each week, I'm not going to stress about it too much.

R put orange pom poms in a pumpkin ice tray (great for 1:1 correspondence)
M used chopsticks to transfer tiny pumpkin erasers to an ice tray with many tiny holes
M poured water into a pumpkin ice tray.
R poured pumpkin erasers back and forth between two small containters.
(He LOVED this activity and kept going until he finally could pour without spilling!)
R matched pumpkins that had different patterns (cut from scrapbook paper)
M matched pumpkin faces with different expressions and we talked about feelings

R isn't able to do these very well, but he still likes to be included!

We don't carve pumpkins, I'm just to afraid of the potential injuries!
After we dismantled the pumpkins above, we bought these small ones to paint.
I made a Sensory Bin out of the pulp and seeds from a pumpkin. Well, actually, I roasted the seeds and pumpkin right away when we cut into it for the pumpkin stamping art above, so the seeds and pulp are from a butternut squash that I used for dinner, but close enough!
|R played with it awhile, but M flat out refused to touch it!|
|Felt Mr. Pumpkin Head|
The kids loved changing out the eyes, noses and mouths.
We are lucky enough to live in an area that has TONS of great fall activities. We chose this year to go to a pumpkin patch that we had never been to before, but is run through the same organization that allows M to go horseback riding for free, provided she does chores around the ranch. The pumpkin patch was free too, and absolutely amazing!
