It's no secret that I love pumpkin, and since pumpkin comes from, well, pumpkins (how in the world did I figure that out?), I thought we'd study a little bit about them. They're so autumn-y and I love autumny things! So today, we learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin. On Monday we learned that red and yellow mixed together makes orange, so we painted our paper plate pumpkin orange on Monday, and today, we read a pumpkin book and did this "life-cycle" picture. I printed this out from the website Making Learning Fun, which is an great resource for crafts and homepreschool things.
Trying to teach an almost 4 year old how to cut something out correctly is not the easiest thing ever, but, I was really proud of him for trying. Even though this isn't really how the finished product is supposed to look, they're in the right order at least...which he did need help with. (and since he discovered the bag of future halloween costumes that was given to me by a friend, he hasn't been able to part with those skeleton gloves)
I'm a bread making fool today, rolls and loaves, and I'm catching up on my Biggest Loser watching while folding laundry. I'm all about the multitasking. My house smells delish and my laundry baskets are finally empty. Life is good again. ...Except my kitchen is now a floury mess. Darn it!
