We have black paper plates left from last year. I thought Bobo could make a regular pumpkin or a jack-o-lantern depending on his mood. He tore up the orange paper and glued it to the paper plate. This is a simple project, you can do with about any theme (apples, leaves etc.)

The Charlie Brown book is still going strong. I'll have to hide it for awhile... We finally used the counting bears! We used the dice to play a competitive game of fill up the counter. Instead of clipping a clothespin to the Fall game board as suggested, we placed our bears on each piece. So we had to match the amount on the die to the amount on the board.

Bobo's favorite tray this week was the magnet science board. He received a magnet science kit for his birthday. It has magnetic wands and marbles. I put out the metallic chips to use with the magnets. Then, I rummaged through my desk to find other magnetic objects. This is a tray, he chose to use throughout the day all week.
