Pumpkin Fun

{P is for Pumpkin}
This week's "Tot Time" was all about pumpkins.  We had so much fun!  We started with our "P is for Pumpkin" pictures which quickly turned into pumpkin rolling.  The kids discovered if they put their pumpkin down on the top of the hill it would roll all the way down.  It became a very fun game.  My friend and I really enjoyed watching them laugh and giggle as they chased their pumpkins.  :-)

 Then we came inside to read and sing songs.  The plan was to read "5 Little Pumpkins" and sing the Pumpkin songs that I found here.  But today this didn't work very well for us (although we enjoyed the songs during bath time later).  So we quickly moved on to our pumpkin patch.

The kids really seemed to enjoy the pumpkin patch.  They picked the pumpkins, played with the grass (packing peanuts) and just had an overall good time.  We decided to let them just play and explore with this for quite a while.  Here are some of candid shots from our pumpkin patch play.

After playing in our pumpkin patch for a while, we tried a new game.  We took our pumpkins inside and put them on a parachute and tried going to the left and right, in and out with it.  This wasn't too successful for us today either.  So we had lunch and moved on to our craft.  I had prepared the craft I found here for us to work on.

 We have talked about, played with and sung about pumpkins ever since we had our tot time.  I love this time of year.  Happy Halloween everyone!!!  :-)

Linking up to Tot School and Wordless Wednesday


  1. Wow! You got some great pictues! I haven't even gotten mine off the camera yet. I should do that tonight. We had so much fun, as always!
