Every week we fill up a basket with items that are the color of our color of our week. (Below is a picture of our Orange basket)

For our RED week we watched and listened to the story The Little Red Hen by Josheph Jacobs and then made this cute paper plate little red hen.

Beyond Easy “5 Little Pumpkins” Puppets

20121022-111654.jpg
We love this little book & often sing it instead of read it. I thought it would be more fun to make little puppets to go with it this year instead of using our hands as the gestures.

I usually slave over felt to make puppets but I was in a time crunch and had to get them done in just a few minutes. I had a large bag of foam shape deco stickers so I grabbed 5 orange circles and drew jack-o-lantern faces on them, then I grabbed 3 of the green hearts and cut the hearts in half to make them look like a leaf and then stuck them onto the circles. I then taped them all together and attached them to a dowel rod.

Here is our favorite version of the “5 Little Pumpkins” which is a little different than the book’s version.

5 Little Pumpkins
5 little pumpkins sitting on a gate
The first on says, “oh my it’s getting late!”
The second one says, “there are witches in the air”
The third one says, “I don’t care”
The fourth one says, “we’ll run and run and run”
The fourth one says, “lets have some fun”
and woooo went the wind
and OUT went the lights
and the 5 little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
