1. Pumpkin bead bracelet
I picked out a bunch of orange beads from my stash of beads and found a green pipe cleaner from my Christmas craft bin. Sebastian strung on all the beads to make this cute pumpkin.
2. Pumpkin snack
I did a bunch of these for Sebastian’s daycare Halloween party. Hint, if you make these, make sure you haven’t refrigerated the clementines first. Having a cold, wet clementine makes the permanent markers not work very well.
One of Sebastian’s favorite books (and one he’s knows by heart) is Brown Bear, Brown Bear. I printed a Halloween version of this book and my favorite part at the end is where I put in a picture of Sebastian. He got excited when he got to the last page and said “That’s me!” He can now read this entire book to us.
We have been working on his shapes the last couple months, so this was a perfect activity. He completed this very quickly and did it 3 times in a row. You may not be able to see in the picture, but I laminated this and put on velcro dots.
I did this with an apple tree in September and he really liked it so I printed out a fall version.
8. Jack-o-Lantern Stamping
I carved a little jack-o-lantern face out of a half of a potato, mixed up some red and yellow paint to make orange and then let him stamp the jack-o-lanterns on paper. Later I added little stems to each pumpkin.
I love making play dough for Sebastian and I think it’s much better then the store bought kind (much softer). I made apple pie play dough in September and have plans to make gingerbread and snow play dough this winter. This pumpkin play dough smells so good!
