Craft/Story Time!

I took an idea that Debbi posted on her Reading Spot for yesterday. The kids and I read The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything and we made pumpkins with construction paper to celebrate the pumpkin head in the story. We then put these pumpkins on our doors in the den. We put up all Halloween decorations with clingees on their windows in their bedrooms, put up our flag, and blew up our giant pumpkin that goes on our front porch every year. A fun time was had by all. Thanks Debbi for this super fun idea!

p.s. i'm not sure which pie recipe Jon used (he's the complicated baker at my house...i stick to cookies :) ) but I think it was the one by Americas Test Kitchen. We have their cookbook, but i'm sure you could find it online.

CUTE! That book sounds awesome. We read books and do crafts to the theme of the book too...this week it's all about fall leaves! I should check out some halloween books before they are gone!
