Bottle Pumpkins

Today we got some exercise while we were making our craft.  I ran out of Orange paint for our Bottle Pumpkins so I added some red and yellow paint to each soda bottle. and it was the kids job to shake, shake, shake the bottles until the paint covered the entire inside of the bottle.  Next we used felt with the sticky back and cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. Once the face was on the pumpkin the children painted the bottle covers brown for a stem.  They really had fun shaking the bottles (as they danced around the room) and watching the paint cover the inside.  The kids thought this was a great craft and were so happy when I told them they could take them home.

Pumpkin Painting

    I picked up Pumpkins for all the Daycare kids to do with what they wanted.  My little ones decided they wanted to paint theirs (Some of them were not here today).  So we did some Pumpkin painting fun.  We mixed colors to see what other colors we would see.  The kids were very creative.   One of my little ones, J, painted hers then wiped it all off and asked me to help her to make an eyes, nose and mouth with her, you will see what I am referring to.  It was a lot of fun for both the kids and myself, just watching them enjoying what they were creating.  They did a great job using all the colors.
