  • Paint a Pumpkin
  •  Get in some sensory play by making a Salt Art Pumpkin, from Creatively Blooming

LESSON PLANS
  • Review A-H
  • Introduce the Letter I
    • Kids love ice cream!!!!  Top off this lesson with an ice cream treat and you'll be Mom of the Day for sure!
  •  Make Puffy Ice Cream Cones, by Teach Preschool
    • Mix 1/4 cup of glue to 1 cup of shaving cream.  Put into a bowl and add a few drops of food coloring.  Allow your child to mix it up with a plastic spoon.
    • Cut an ice cream cone out of brown construction paper and attach it to a second sheet of paper.
    • Have your child top the cone with the shaving cream ice cream.
    • Shaving cream is an awesome sensory experience.  Don't be surprised if your child winds up with his hands in the shaving cream.  If you want, make letters and numbers in the cream.  According the Teach Preshool, it washes off easily.
