Fall Celebration Ideas
We love "cooking" this year with our "Recipe for Success" theme so our first activity was making a ghost cookie. The idea actually came from one of our mothers, that has her own cookie blog, that sent the teachers a few ghost cookies as a treat. We simplified the cookie and the children loved this easy ghost - a Nutter Butter cookie covered with white icing and then two small chocolate chips for eyes and a larger one for the mouth.
Also from our Math work, we put 10 candy corns and 10 candy pumpkins in a Ziploc for each child and then asked the children to make combinations of ten. This is a play on our Math Investigations "peas and carrots" activity. The children used these fun manipulatives to make the combinations and then shared their work in a typical math closing activity.
