"Oh, Halloween is Here!"

With Halloween just around the corner we started some activities to get us "in the mood."

Our first project this week is one of my favorite--the children's also. It's our first experience with glitter for the year and they are always so amazed at the results. A few years ago I found these great glitter spider webs over at Creative and Curious Kids. I have been making them ever since. They are so cute and the children are just mesmerized by the webs. We had a lot of fun with this on Tuesday. Here is the link that takes you to how to make them.

On this day we also had some scissor practice. I plan to do an activity this week that involves their using the scissors to cut something out. So, I put out some scraps and scissors so that they could practice with the scissors.

Also, when we had started fall, I had found a chestnut that was completely closed. We set it out to dry to see if we could get the nuts out. It opened this week and we pulled the chestnuts out.

Thursday was trip day. (We didn't do a color this week because of our trip.) We take a "Halloween trip" to a place called Farmer's Daughter in our area. Thank goodness the weather held out for us, we weren't sure at first. It turned out to be a beautiful day. We went on a hayride, through a corn maze, picked a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, had story time, and finally had snack outside. What a great way to spend a day together.

I Think, preeschool education is so important, is the phase where the children form neuronal connections that help them to develop their knowledge.Thanks for sharing great post!!
