Pumpkin Love!

I love October, even though here in South Florida we celebrate a bit differently. The "pumpkin patch" we visit is the display in the grocery store, we look for costumes that are as lightweight as possible so that we don't sweat profusely through them and the candy for the trick-or-treaters should be something that won't melt in their bags before the little guys get home. The leaves don't really change colors - but the palms do start to sway a bit more in the breeze that rolls in this time of year. The weatherman got excited to tell us about a cool front coming in last weekend - the high was only 86! It actually was pretty nice coupled with lower humidity than usual. That's pretty much fall for us southern folk, but it doesn't stop me from enjoying all things pumpkin including my pumpkin spice lattes and crafts with the kids!

I had been looking for a jack-o'lantern glyph to do with the class to hang up on our clothesline, but I couldn't find one I loved. I did find this one at Mathwire.com, but it wasn't quite what I wanted, so I decided to come up with one of my own. I think they came out pretty cute!

If you'd like to complete the glyph with your kids, get a free copy of the key and the patterns at my TpT store, by clicking on the image below - no tricks, just treats!
