And so this is my final post on Halloween Week for preschooler Adrian. I hope you've all enjoyed browsing through! :)
Tweezing skulls into pumpkin pail
The little pumpkin pails are always a hit around here. Must be because they are small and seasonal! :) We opted to tweeze-in 1 white plastic skull per pail. Both the skulls and pails were purchased at our local dollar store last year. The challenge was partly picking up a single skull and holding on tight to the tweezers so it would be dropped into a pail.
Memory Matching Game with Jack O'Lanterns
Matching & memory games are always fun and good for pre-math skills development. I do not have a very great gift at drawing so I printed two copies of these from Frenzy Universe and cut them up. Because a lot of the faces have similar traits, I printed them on paper instead of cardstock. It allowed Adrian to see through ever so slightly and lessened potential frustrations...We started by matching so he could familiarize himself with the jack o' lanterns and finished with the memory game.

Craft - Tissue Paper Candy Corn
Ah...Of course I had no orange tissue paper left...Oh well. I pre-cut strips of tissue paper and showed Adrian how to scrunch them into little balls. He then painted some liquid glue onto the template and stuck the tissue paper balls into it. Template was found on a blog.
