Parent Corner

Check back each week for a new idea to try with your children!

This week's Parent Corner Idea (October 18, 2020)

Jack-O-Lantern Designs

Following up from last week, fold a piece of paper into either four or eight sections. Have your child draw the outline of a pumpkin in each section and then create a variety of jack-o-lantern faces. Together write a word underneath each jack-o-lantern that describes the face: happy, shocked, sad, angry, etc. Perhaps one of the drawings will inspire your pumpkin carving this year!
