Back at the end of October, we did a Pumpkin theme Homeschool Morning to celebrate Halloween! Be sure to bookmark these activities for next fall 🙂
After learning about the life cycle, we made a timeline using sequence cards. This activity sheet plus more pumpkin worksheets can be downloaded for free on Teachers Pay Teachers.
I bought these from Oriental Trading for both my storytime and homeschool morning sessions. They were a hit! Also they are just stickers so no need to make a mess with glue!
I made this slime in the summer and it was so easy and fun I had to share again. I followed instructions from the Steve Spangler website and it worked out great!
1 Tsp. Borax
1/2 cup warm water
8 oz. bottle of Elmer’s Glue
Smaller mixing bowl
Food Dye (Red & Yellow)
- Empty the entire bottle of glue into a mixing bowl. Fill the empty bottle with warm water and shake. Pour the glue-water mixture into the mixing bowl and mix well.
- Add food coloring after mixing
- Measure 1/2 cup of warm water into separate mixing bowl and add a teaspoon of Borax powder to the water. Stir the powder/water solution.
- Slowly add a little of the Borax solution into the glue mixture while continuously mixing. You will start to feel the long strands glue and borax connecting. Keep adding the Borax solution to the glue mixture (don’t stop mixing) until you get a perfect batch of slime!
Here is how mine turned out…
Using toothpicks and pumpkin candies (sour gummies) the group created pumpkin structures. They had 10 minutes to create their building before testing its’ strength using books!
Pumpkin Pie Cup
1 Vanilla Pudding Cup
1 Tbsp of Pumpkin Puree
1 Tbsp Crushed Graham Crackers
In pudding cup, combine graham crackers and pumpkin puree. It gets a little full so you may want to have the kids eat a few bites of pudding first 🙂 This was a yummy treat and also helped them practice measuring.
