Preschool weeks 8 and 9

C is 42 months old
We have combined the last two week into one post. Last week we all had yucky colds so we did not get a lot accomplished but this week we have felt much better and we actually managed to get a few lessons completed. We have been working on the letter P for pumpkin. We have also worked on the Bible Story of Adam and Eve. On thing that we are going to do this weekend is Read the Pumpkin Patch Parable and talk about how the farmer got all of the yucky stuff out of the pumpkin and then put a light in it to shine and how God dose this to us when when trust Him. When we have faith in Him he will take out all of our yucky stuff and then we can be a light that shines for Him. We are going to make a pumpkin to go along with the story so I will try to post pictures of this on Sunday.

A friend gave the boys pails that they could decorate for their treats on Halloween. They had a lot of fun picking out the stickers and making the faces on the buckets. They were so cute that I used them later in the week for table decorations for a party we had.

We worked on building fine motor skills by tearing paper to decorate a pumpkin then we took some black paper and turned it into a jack-o-lantern. This was very good for C's fine motor skills plus it makes a cute Halloween decoration.

Then C fingerpainted a pumpkin. He loved this activity a lot!!

Then we talked about the letter Pp and the sound it makes. C then brainstormed some p words and then glued popcorn to a p on a pumpkin. He also enjoyed eating the popcorn!!

We spent some time playing with Mr. Potato Head. C got really creative with all of the heads that he made. They were so neat!!

We made Halloween cookies. A lot of them were pumpkin shape and C decorated them to look like Jack-O-Lanterns. They were yummy too!!

C punched holes and laced a pumpkin and then cut his own shapes out to decorate it!!

C cut out his won pumpkin shape and then cut eyes, a nose, and a mouth. Then he put yellow tissue paper behind it and when we put it in the window it looks just like it is lit up.
