Happy Halloween

Here are a few highlights from our morning.
Shaving cream and little pumpkins.
Soft, smooth, slippery.
A old favourite, hammering golf tees into a pumpkin.
This year's favourite was this memory game.
Under each half cup was a little finger puppet.
They kept looking till they found the matching pair.
Lots of noises were made for each of the characters.
Count the pumpkin seeds.
Lentils, black beans and tiny insects to scoop.

At the end of our morning we joined the school for a Pumpkin Run.
We teamed up with our big buddies.
Centres were set up around the school yard and the groups had to run
one to another once they finished.
This centre they had to recite the poem
Five Little Pumpkins.
They played Over and Under by passing a pumpkin from person to person.
The first person passing it over their head then the next person
passing it under their legs.
We had to transfer all the 'pumpkins' (basketballs) from one bin
down the line to the other bin.
Like a fire brigade.
And the last one we did was to toss rings around the witches' hats.
