October Orange!!!!!

Although we dont celebrate holidays at You're Invited Children's Center we do use the colors and some symbols of the seasons to create learn by play activities. These are some of the Orange/Pumpkin activities we did this week! Counting and sorting with candy pumpkins. We used pumpkin scoops for fine motor development.

Pumpkin cookie cutters with orange paint mixed with glue and orange colored salt in shakers.
Outside we painted on small, medium & big
pumpkins with water color tablets.
