So Much To Do, So Little Time

There are so many fun fall activities to do that we just don’t have time to fit in everything I would love to get to do with Hailey.  Here are a few of the things I picked to do with her last week:

We made a fall tree:

You’ll need some construction paper for the leaves and grass, as well as fall tree, some scissors and some glue.

Rip apart the fall colored paper into small pieces (these will be your leaves).

Glue your tree onto the paper.

Add some grass, then put the leaves on the tree.

The finished fall tree.

We sang several songs about leaves.

Hailey is throwing some fake fall leaves onto the floor as we sang 1 Little, 2 Little, 3 Little Leaves… (to the tune of 1 Little, 2 Little, 3 Little Indians)

Hailey loved making these pumpkin faces:

Cut out some pumpkins and some shapes for their eyes, noses and mouths.  Add contact paper for durability, then put Velcro on the pumpkins for the eyes, nose and mouth and put Velcro on the backs of your pieces.

Then put the pumpkins together.  This kept Hailey occupied for a pretty long time.  I got most of dinner ready while she played with this.

She finished all of these, then we took the pieces off and she did it again.  (By the way, the reason I have 8 of these is that I had these when I was teaching pre-k.  It is certainly not necessary to make this many pumpkins for your use at home.)

Then we did a pumpkin painting:

You’ll need: paper, paint, a small pumpkin and (not pictured) a knife.

I cut the pumpkin open and let Hailey check out the insides.  She wasn’t too sure what to think.  We took a bunch of the seeds out.  We will plant a few in a cup for her to watch them grow.  Then we will save some more to plant outside in the spring and hopefully grow some of our own pumpkins.

After she finished checking out the inside of the pumpkin, Hailey used it to paint.
