October Crafts

October Smarty

If your child’s preschool is anything like ours, going back to school means an influx of art projects, some more abstract than others. (One week, I kid you not, it was green paper covered in three dimensional dried brown gloop –paint mixed with potting soil – but that is not what it looked like! One of the few masterpieces that went in the trash without any mom guilt.)

Smarty – October Spooky Eye Portraits

October

It’s October and while the ghosts and ghouls are out to play, we wanted to work on labeling emotions and socio-dramatic play with our kids by making spooky eye portraits. Using ping pong balls you get the illusion the pictures eyes are following you! Creeeepy! And, using props and costumes to take the photos is a great learning opportunity for our kids to act out different emotions and expressions. Enjoy!

Trick-Or-Treat!

Trick or Treat

Halloween is around the corner! One of my favorite Halloween activities is practice trick-or-treat. This can be as simple or elaborate as you like. All you really need is a door, a bag and a treat, but it might be fun to incorporate dress-up clothes or have a Halloween dress rehearsal.
