The pumpkin study continues with another autumn still life. The children have been talking about fall and translating what they have observed onto paper and into stories.
The toddler class began their studio exploration of pumpkins by carefully removing the seeds from quartered sections of baking pumpkins. These seeds were placed in nearby cups while the more gooey innards were deposited into a large bowl. The children were eager to help and many of them talked about pumpkins: "They come from gardens", "They live at Halloween", "Eat them!".
