Pumpkin Fun in PreK

Post image for Pumpkin Fun in PreK

We have been enjoying working with apples and pumpkins this week.

On Monday and Tuesday we baked apples with cinnamon and sugar.  The kids even got to cut the apples themselves! We also cut open pumpkins and scraped out the seeds.  We compared the sizes of the pumpkins and estimated how many seeds would be in each one.  We counted the seeds and cooked them. The kids have also been exploring the pumpkins in our science area.

On Wednesday we made cinnamon play dough which we squished, rolled, and cut into shapes.  On Thursday and Friday we made pumpkin and apple cookies!  During each of these activities, we talked about what happens when you mix different ingredients together and we practiced measuring.
