Cooking: Easy Pumpkin Pudding

Melody R. helps children with measuring as they cook up this Autumn treat.

Materials and Ingredients:
1 cup vanilla pudding for each child
2 tsp. Libby’s easy pumpkin pie mix per child
A bowl for each child
A spoon for each child

Description: Help young children measure and place one cup of vanilla pudding in their individual bowls. Next, measure out 2 tsp. pie mix with each child. Ask children to mix the vanilla pudding and the pie mix   together for a seasonal and yummy treat.

Sensory: “Fall Feely Box”

Learning different textures and identifying them is fun for young preschool and kindergarten children during this early childhood activity by Jana M.

Materials: Leaves, acorns, pine cones, nuts, apples, and other things you have discussed. You’ll need a box the children can fit their hands into without seeing inside. I use a large shoe box with a hole cut in the top.

Description: Teachers, without the children seeing you, add the objects in the box. During circle time have the children take turns feeling inside the box. Ask each child to describe what he or she feels and what they thinks it is.

Comments: I use this box often, the children love it
