Halloween Nature Fun!

Last week at Nurturing Acorns, we explored Halloween Nature Fun! We started with a little bit of stickers in our nature journals--or a whole lot depending on who you were! :-)

The sensory bin was a hit with the addition of a few Halloween inspired items, like pumpkins and bats! We read books about pumpkins and worked on sequencing and the life cycle of pumpkins. 

Outside, we looked for fall colors using paint chips on a ring. We always love this activity for any age! 

One of the highlights of our walk was finding a walking stick! Great eyes! 

We had to investigate all the holes and the fungus!

For snack, we had string cheese ghosts, pumpkins, and a little popcorn. 

Later, we play Mr. Pumpkin Head and decorated small pumpkins. 

We also tried our hand at pumpkin pounding

We sorted by small, medium, and large. We also looked at various fall harvest and pumpkin words and pictures. 

Of course, the sensory bins were still a hit!
