The Little Bumbles have been exploring all things pumpkin related! The role play area has turned into an Autumn den, with a variety of pumpkins and squashes! The children have been using the pumpkins for counting, categorising and sorting activities. They have added the pumpkins to enhance their role play such as being pumpkin farmers and collecting pumpkins as witches for their cauldrons! The children were interested to open up some of the pumpkins, they use different tools to scoop out the middle and seeds. The next day with jelly they became potions! This inspired lots of language such as slimy, squashy, wet, sticky, teeny, hard, orange, wobbly!
