Since pumpkins are all around us during this fall season, what better topic to choose for a lapbook? This was Olivia’s largest project ever, as there is an abundance of pumpkin activites out there in cyber-land. Here is a glimpse of the lapbook.
The cover is decorated with pumpkins made from Olivia’s knuckle prints.
Next Olivia did some color mixing. The pumpkin came from a pattern book that I have, but pumpkin patterns are plentiful online. The poem came from here. The right page includes the pumpkin life cycle, a matching emotions game, and a Shine for Jesus mini-book (goes great with The Pumpkin Patch Parable!).
The last pages consist of Jack-O’Lantern matching, pumpkin puzzles (numbers), and an alphabet dot-to-dot. Olivia also included a project on what’s inside of a pumpkin. I found the patterns here. The insides are pumpkin seeds and orange yarn.
On the back cover, Olivia completed another alphabet dot-to-dot with lower case letters.
This was a huge project for Olivia, and it took three weeks to complete. She did have lots of fun with it!
