Of course, we had to make a pumpkin! We did ours a little different this year. We painted it with condensed milk and food coloring.
While we were making our pumpkins one of the boys said he wished he had a blue pumpkin, because blue was his favorite color. Hmmm . . . . change of lesson plan! The next day we made our very own "Personalized Pumpkins"! Some were fat and pink
Some were tall and pink
Some were all about our favorite football teams -
The Florida 'Gators!
War Eagle for Auburn University
Others were a combination of things we liked -
All in all we decided our pumpkins were perfect!
I found this little poem about a squirrel and really like it.
We just needed the "perfect" little squirrel to go with it. AHHHHH! . . . found it! First we added cotton balls to his tail. Next, the fun part! We used old squirt bottles to turn him gray!
I knew those old bottles would come in handy! After we sprayed him we wiped his body with a paper towel. What a wonderful piece of fall art!
