HALLOWEEN!!!
The thrill and excitement of the season is upon us! 
I am hoping that in the midst of the abrupt change of seasons (for some of us) that you are safe and enjoying all of the delight of the concluding of the month. 

Do you celebrate fall harvest? 
Do you have fun with Halloween? 

What could be simpler than a brown paper bag pumpkin?

Leave well enough alone -- or embellish with magic marker details. 
These doozies are 'hanging on the gate!'

I can still remember the first time I held a 'little miniature pumpkin. 
They make me smile every season -- all over again!

I had this pumpkin activity in last Friday's Fine Motor, but I think it deserves a repeat performance with the rest of the pumpkin clan.

In the same way that I've been talking about the fun and flexibility of creating your own monster with its unique details, designing your own Jack-o-Lantern opens up the floodgates of possibilities.

Here's the two dimensional version of the Jack-o-Lanterns on the Gate. 
This time the bulletin board is outside the kindergarten classroom.
