My son has the week off from school this week. We have been going and going. Pumpkin patches and San Francisco. Tomorrow is a Pumpkin Patch with my sister. Hit way too many (working on getting them inexpensively so we can do a patch at his school). So Friday, I want to have an easy day. I thought we would go to a friendís and the boys (both 5) can do an art or craft project and/or a baking, food or cooking project for Halloween.

Anyone have any great ideas that would interest 5 year old boys?

Draw the outline of a pumpkin on black construction paper. Cut orange paper into strips. Have the kids rip one or 2 inch pieces off the strip. Glue onto the pumpkin outline.

My kids loved it because the enjoyed ripping the paper and gluing.

You can find examples by googling ‘torn paper pumpkin’.

I am wondering why you can't just go and let the boys play? They don't need something organized all the time. Imagination and creativity is good for the soul and they get that by playing (and sometimes being bored and figuring out what to do).

My take on your week? Itís been fun filled and creative. Let the two boys just play together with their toys. Let them develop some creative play on their own while you and other mom enjoy a cup of coffee.

My kindergartners LOVE color mixing. They find it fascinating. You can do a color mixing pumpkin. Draw a big oval in the middle of a paper and a horizon line. Squirt red and yellow in the oval for the orange pumpkin, blue and yellow under the horizon for the grass, and blue and red above the horizon for the night sky. After we do each part, I have them turn the brush around and "draw" details in the paint with the end of the brush.

Usually when we go to this boyís house, they just play. The last time we were there they decided to paint rocks. They loved it (not sure how other boy stays clean and Gabriel has paint everywhere), but whatever). Then Gabriel has been asking to do some arts and crafts but he usually asks as we are going somewhere. I figured if come up with something, get the supplies and do it. I wonít force them to do it, but donít see anything wrong with making it an option. From what it seems like neither boy is doing much if any at school.

Thanks for the ideas, canít wait to try some!
