Power to the Pumpkin
I love autumn, especially around Halloween,and have started preparing for this year’s fun. My kids are 4 and 7 and enjoy the holiday as much as I do. This year, I am pulling out all the stops to decorate but I don’t want to spend a fortune. Here is some of the pumpkin creativity we have started with.
We used a 3-sided presentation board, black poster paper and some construction paper to create our pumpkin beanbag toss. I was inspired by this pumpkin toss game from Better Homes and Gardens. The kids choose the design and and googly eyes. I added the curly tendrils and made some beanbags from fabric scraps filled with dry lentils. The kids are having a blast playing the toss game and we’ll use it for our Halloween party next month.
