A Very Pumpkin-y Day

It's that time of year where all things are pumpkin: pumpkin flavored coffee drinks, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin decorations, and of course, pumpkin crafts and activities! The kids got to do the yearly painting of the pumpkins:

Pumpkin cookie cutter painting

After naps, the big activity was a fizzy cookie cutter pumpkin:
We used baking soda and vinegar and a slowly rotting pumpkin to create our fizz. it wasn't as fizzy as I hoped but the kids still loved it.

We even did a grow snake in pumpkin scented water (at Harrison's request):

Pumpkin Spice Slime:

Our Halloween books we're reading this week:

Lots and lots of pumpkins!

Tomorrow the kids will be continuing the pumpkin and Halloween theme by painting with Pumpkin Spice paint and doing Ghost cookie cutter paintings!
