Halloween Pumpkins: Monster Style

When we went pumpkin picking at my brother’s, the boys couldn’t help but pick a bunch of unripe, green pumpkins.  When I asked if they’d like to decorate some pumpkins for inside, Henry said only the green ones.

After playing with colored spaghetti noodles with George… Henry and I made some spaghetti spider webs with it too! This time, I let Henry do the coloring. What other color would he pick, but green?

Create a Family of Pumpkin Mummies for Halloween!

These are a super cute craft for Halloween that the preschoolers can do! I chose four pumpkins that I thought resembled our family from our heaping pile of pumpkins on our front porch. [Ha. Hmm...
