We made this cute and easy little pumpkin.
You’ll need: small styrofoam ball, orange tissue paper, black felt, small black pipe cleaner, glue.
Rip the orange tissue paper into small pieces and then glue them onto the styrofoam ball, covering the whole thing up.
While your child is busy covering the ball up, cut out some pieces from the felt for a face.
Push the pipe cleaner into the top of your pumpkin for a stem. Add a face to the pumpkin.
The finished pumpkin.
Last week our theme was pumpkins. So we made some sequencing cards to help Hailey learn the steps in growing a pumpkin.
First Hailey colored the cards.
Then she cut them apart.
Then she glued them onto construction paper in the correct order.

Our letter last week was the letter Dd. Here are some of the activities that we did.
Hailey used the Do-a-Dot art to decorate the letter Dd.
We played with Playdough and used a cookie cutter D to cut out the letter D.
For our alphabet book we made a D is for Doctor bag that we saw over at Homeschool Creations.
You’ll need: white, red and black construction paper, scissors, tape, glue and some (child safe) doctor supplies.
Here is Hailey working on putting the medical supplies into her doctor bag. (She was sick last week, so this particular day happened to be a pajama day!)
The outside of her D is for Doctor Bag.
The inside of her Doctor bag.
We also ate some donuts to go along with the letter D, but I forgot to take a picture.
One of the books we read last week for our Fire Safety theme had a dalmatian in it named Dot. So, Hailey decided that she wanted to make Dot the Dalmatian.
You’ll need: red and black construction paper, google eyes, glue and a paper bowl.
Cut out a tongue, ears and spots. I used a 3 hole punch to cut out a bunch of spots for the dog.
Glue the spots onto the bowl.
Add the eyes, ears and tongue. Then Hailey told me we needed to add a hat just like Dot in the book had. So, I did my best to make a hat.
