Making paper plate jack-o-lanterns with Daddy!
Coloring Sesame Street Halloween pictures ...
And some zoo animals stickers and coloring sheets ...
Snacking on some harvest mix!
Completing her zoo riddle book ...
And playing our action game where we moved like the animal on the card that was turned over!
Flapping like a parrot ...
And slithering like a snake ...
Completing her Elmo's 'Smallest to Biggest' worksheet with reusable stickers ...
Matching the picture to its letter sound ...
Making 'H's in her sugar tray ...
And making footprint ghosts ...
... which we hung from our dining room light!
