Pumpkin Patch!


Recently we visited the Pumpkin Patch to pick a pumpkin!









We talked about the different stages of a pumpkin, how they are green at first before growing into a full size orange pumpkin,


and we examined the vines that pumpkins grow on.










Butterfly then explored The Life Cycle of a Pumpkin file folder game at home.



We purchased some mini white pumpkins from the patch, which made a great clean white surface for decorating!


So I prepared an Art Caddy for Butterfly full of glitter pens, stickers, pipe cleaners, and Sharpie markers.


This kept Butterfly busy all afternoon, going back and forth to the porch to get the next plain pumpkin to glam it up with her creativity!





And now we have an even prettier Fall porch!



Here are the Pumpkin Books we have been enjoying:
