Today we had some fun with pumpkins!
In Bible we learned how God is like a farmer who picks a special pumpkin (us), cleans it up (our sins), carves a happy face (gives us joy), and puts a light inside (so we can shine his love). When we see a jack-o-lantern we can think about God!
At nap time we turned out all the lights to see our pumpkin glow!
Later we passed around a pumpkin bucket and chanted a poem.
“Pumpkin, pumpkin, going ’round
Take out a letter and say the sound”
When the poem ended the person holding the bucket had to take out a phonogram card and we all said the sound.
We described pumpkins using our five senses.
We also read a book called Sixteen Runaway Pumpkins and then did an experiment to see how differently a pumpkin and a ball can move.
Who knew pumpkins could teach us so much?
