Themed Learning {Halloween}

A few years ago I shared about doing a themed learning unit, Winter. I remember how much fun that was for the kids, so I decided to bring back themed learning units. Yay!

Of course with Halloween being only 1 day away, what better theme to start with…

Halloween Themed Learning

 

We started our Halloween themed learning unit last week, and here is everything we did.

We carve pumpkins every year. It has been a tradition of ours for about 12 years now.

#3 – Candy corn, corn on the cobs

We first tried our hand at this a few years ago, and it was a lot of fun so we decided to try it again. You can find really cool ones on Pinterest.

Food we ate:

Pumpkin shaped sandwiches – We made peanut butter and jelly, but you could do any kind of sandwich. You just need a cookie cutter. I paired the sandwiches with oranges, Jello (orange), Carrots with ranch, goldfish, Halloween Oreo, and a homemade pumpkin looking pretzel.

Mummy hot dogs – So cute, fun, and easy to make! You only need hot dogs and crescent rolls to make these mummy hot dogs. Recipe can be found HERE.

Roasted Pumpkin seeds – Use the seeds from the pumpkin carving, roast them in the oven (350 degrees F) for about 20 minutes.

That’s it for our Halloween themed learning week! I hope you enjoyed it!
