1. We baked.
Homemade sugar cookie dough, from the Betty Crocker Cookbook. Some new cookie cutters, and some cookie cutters passed down from mawmaw. Some sprinkles and some messy boys!
2. We did a LOT of seasonal art.
We did some various pumpkin art work, origami pumpkins, the boys did several drawings from Art for Kids Hub, and the kids also painted pumpkins. This was actually Eleanor's first time painting. She had a blast! Emory just decorated his pumpkin with various colors, and Elliott put multiple smiley faces on his.
3. We did a some "fun" Autumn themed worksheets. These are a few that we worked on.
Pumpkin Descriptive Writing (while we dissected a pumpkin)
Fall Word Search
4. We carved pumpkins.
We had a Leonardo, a Raphael, and a Minnie Mouse. Toasted pumpkin seeds, of course.
We had a Leonardo from TMNT, a Spyro from Skylanders, and a cute little bumblebee! We went to Daddy's work party one night, and trick-or-treating another night. Candy overload.
Next up in our homeschool: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle School. I kid you not, I was asked to create a unit study around TMNT, so I've been brainstorming!
