This week I updated our Pumpkin Life Cycle foldable. 

We recently started a science notebook.  I really wanted to have a place to keep all of our science flip books organized and a record of what we have been up to this year.  Since the actual flip book is too large to fit into our science notebook, I reduced the paper size by printing two sheets per page so we were able to glue the flip book onto a blank page of our science notebook.     Click here to grab a copy of this FREE Pumpkin Life Cycle flip book.

We kicked off our Halloween week by making Halloween Slime!

Let me start by saying warning, this was our first sensory bag experience.  First, we squirted an entire bottle of clear hair gel into a Ziploc plastic bag.  Next, we added  a few drops of green "neon" food coloring.  Then, added our googly eyes. Finally, we taped the top and sides with clear packed tape.
