Man, do I ever love the fall. The weather today was perfect! Sunny skies, nice breeze. Just a tiny bit of crispness in the air. Perfect for spending the day outside: running around, playing on the slide, and painting pumpkins! One of the farmer’s markets in downtown Erie always sells these tiny pumpkins (I think they are actually a squash or something) and they make the perfect little paint project for the kids. Coupled with this incredible Fall Printable Packet from Homeschool Creations, the whole experience makes a great fall fun lesson!
I don’t think you need much explanation on this one, so I’ll leave you with some fun pictures! If you can, try to paint outside in order to soak up this great weather. And check out the fun pumpkin-theme links below. We’re hoping to squeeze in a trip to the local pumpkin farm, Port Farms as well. That place is a smorgasbord of fun! What are you doing to celebrate the season?
- Pumpkin Countdown: This is great for counting to 20. The pictures are bright and busy!
- Pumpkin Town! Or, Nothing Is Better and Worse Than Pumpkins: What a funny story!
- Duck & Goose, Find a Pumpkin: So cute!
