I don't really need an excuse to go to the pumpkin farm, it is just that fun. And besides, it's tradition.
When we came home from our little field trip, I used a few pictures I had taken of the children to do an art project with them. I took a picture of each of them, printed a copy and then the children cut it right in half. We talked about symmetry and then the children tried to draw the missing half of their face.
I was SO impressed with the results! I did sketch the head outline but that was the only line I helped with. Each one of the children captured a piece of their personality in their drawings. Even Adele'.who is only four, made a drawing that actually looked like HER.
