Five Little Pumpkins   (felt board fun)   (mini book)   (poem)

Our Pumpkin Patch
If you are planning to decorate pumpkins with young children here is an alternative that does not involve any sharp tools.  One year we found and bought these mini pumpkins at the grocery store (they were about the size of a baseball).   We dove into our craft cupboard and pulled out tacky glue, wool, pom poms, felt, foam, wiggly eyes and markers then put all the items on the table and let the children have at it.  (Dad isn't really one of the children but he still had fun making the three eyed pumpkin on the right.)

I think they turned out pretty cute!!
