October is a great month, full of fall time fun: leaves and pumpkins and Halloween (as well as a birthday for our family!). At our house we enjoy reading books to celebrate the season. Here is a sampling of what we are reading this month:
So…what’s on our activity line-up for the month? Our traditional trip to the pumpkin patch, a ward Trunk-or-Treat party, Boo at the Zoo, carving pumpkins, and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. But I’m sure we’ll have time for a few fun projects:
This year these adorable thumbprint spiders have caught my eye.
Thanks to Teach Mama, our lunchboxes will contain a laugh in the form of Halloween lunchbox notes.
Teach Mama also shared a lot great ideas for classroom parties, which can also be used at home. I like the Ghost Bingo Game.
Not Just Cute has a great index of preschool activities for fall (and pumpkins!).
Thanks to the Ant Bug, we’ve got a great start on our Halloween decorations. She spent most of last Saturday working on this poster, and I think she included everything pertinent to Halloween: a haunted mansion, spiders and webs, a witch on her broom, bats, a ghost, and a full moon. I love her creativity!
Be sure to check out my past Halloween posts for lots of great activity ideas to celebrate Halloween.
