In many of the posts in this blog, I like to reinforce that when children are having fun, this is the best opportunity to learn! Fall and the anticipation of Halloween is a great opportunity to deepen your child’s learning on many different levels. Decorating, crafts, costume preparations, these are all opportunities to spend time with your child and to think about taking their education one step further at whatever stage in life they might be. See this best selections of wonderful articles about making Jack-O-Lantern, pumpkin carving, and Halloween to get a bit more art education with your child. To me as a teacher, Fall is wonderful time of the year as the ideas about motivating a child are endless.
I simply love this post and I feel all parents should read it. Fall is a great time to not only decorate but also learn some of the basic principles in art. Creating Jack-O-lantern is a great way of doing that.
