We will be painting our pumpkins this Friday and displaying them around the classroom. Next week we will dig into the pumpkins for sensory play and to learn more about them.
We created Frankentoes as an art project. Be sure to take a look at our Frankentoes on the classroom wall! This month we are talking about the difference between daytime and nighttime. Our colors to investigate for October are orange and black.
Thank you to those parents who have provided Playdough for our classroom. We have a sign up sheet in the room for anyone who would like to make fresh Playdough for us to use. Please let me know if you would like to sign up! Below is the recipe for making Playdough:
Mix together all the ingredients, except the food coloring, in a 2-quart saucepan.
Cook over low/medium heat, stirring continuously. Once it begins to thicken, add the food coloring.
Continue stirring until the mixture is much thicker and begins to qather around the spoon. You will know it is finished when it forms a ball in the pan.
Remove the dough onto wax paper or a plate to cool.
Store in a Ziploc bag or sealed container.
