Builds on: Hand eye coordination, gross motor
What you'll need:
8-10 Empty food cans
2 small pumpkins
What to do:
Acrylic paint does stain so you should put down a drop cloth first and change everyone into clothes that can get dirty. Place the cans, paint and paint brushes out with a large enough piece of card board for all of the paint you are using. Place a dollop of each colored paint onto the cardboard and start painting your cans to resemble Halloween characters.
Place your kids about 3 feet from the cans with a pumpkin and show them how to roll the pumpkins to knock down the wall. Since smaller pumpkins have bumps and aren't round they'll wander as they roll creating a fun challenge for the kids to overcome.
*Don't let the kids throw the pumpkins since they could really hurt someone.
