The Pumpkin Patch Parable, by Liz Curtis Higgs, asks “What is it like to be a Christian?” This was one of our themes over the past while and enjoyed exploring this concept with the children.
Our pumpkin patch (as the children called the loft now) was the highlight of our class. Thank you to all the donated pumpkins, gourds and fall items. Their curiosity, exitment, and inspiration was amazing. This area of play helps the children develop and strenghthen their large motor skills as they climb up and down the stairs. They also expanded their social skills as they needed to share the space with two other friends. And not to mention, they learned math skills with the assorted kinds of pumpkins.
