Finger Print Pumpkins

Buddy studied a poem about pumpkins today. To go along with the lesson we made Finger Print Pumpkins.... They lined them all up in a row across the bottom of the page...
Added some scenery...

And then drew on their jack-o-lantern faces...
Well, B-Bop got to draw faces....Buddy's are so globby we will be lucky if they are dry enough in a week to draw on his faces...

I spot the hills
With yellow balls in autumn.
I light the prairie cornfields
Orange and tawny gold clusters
And I am called pumpkins.
On the last of October
When dusk is fallen
Children join hands
And circle round me
Singing ghost songs
And love to the harvest moon;
I am a jack-o'-lantern
With terrible teeth
And the children know
I am fooling.
-Carl Sandburg

Very cute! We have a great pumpkin patch we go to every year. I'm going to keep this in mind for after our trip.
