Having a little fun with pumpkin, we made pumpkin “moon sand”. Well…I don’t know how successful this really was. To me this didn’t turn out like a moon sand or kinetic sand like I would expect. My oldest son didn’t like it at all, he played with it the day we made it and wouldn’t touch it again. My youngest enjoyed it, but after a week it got really gross and I had to throw it out. I definitely wouldn’t make it again. Might be fun to make outside during the summer though.
Thank you to Growing a Jeweled Rose for the idea http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2013/09/pumpkin-moon-sand-recipe.html
Then we got busy with some art. The boys drew a pumpkin patch, working on depth and layering. They also drew their own Jack O Lanterns.
