Pumpkin Beanbag

Today we made a pumpkin beanbag.
You will need:
  • 1 black marker
  • 1 brown marker
  • Orange felt
  • Hot glue gun or needle and thread
  • Beans
  •  Scissors
How to make it:
First, draw out your outline on the felt and cut out two identical shapes. Next, draw a face on one of your pumpkin shapes with your black marker. Then, draw the stem brown. Now, hot glue (or sew) half of your pumpkin and fill with beans. Finish the other half. Your beanbag is finished! You can make multiple ones and make a game to see who can throw their pumpkin the farthest. Have fun!

Rainforest Trip

Today Paul told me he wanted to go to the Rainforest, so we did. We made a rainmaker. You can make one out of a paper towel roll, tape, and uncooked beans. Then Paul geared up for the "rain". He really enjoyed it.
