If I’m being completely honest with you, I have to tell you that my husband does not fully appreciate my love for this book. Hahahaha! I placed a hold on it at my local library and waited for what seemed like an eternity for it to become available. When I picked it up at the library I sat in the passenger seat (husband was driving) and couldn’t help myself but open it up and read it out loud to him, laughing the entire way through it. Let’s just say he was less than amused. 🙂 But you know, I just can’t help myself!
I saw the most fun idea from The Mailbox to make a scented pumpkin craft and I instantly knew it was PERFECT to go along with this book. It is a rather silly kind of craft but my preschooler has absolutely adored it!
I got out a paper plate and had my son paint the inside of it pumpkin orange. While the paint was still wet, we sprinkled some gold glitter in it and some pumpkin pie spice all over the plate.
After the paint was dry, we glued square pieces of brown tissue paper around the outside edge of the paper plate to create the crust. You wouldn’t even know it was fake because with the pumpkin pie spice sprinkled on, it smells like the real thing!
It’s been sitting on the kitchen counter for days now and every time the boys walk by they have to stop to take a big whiff and exclaim how excited they are to eat the real pie on Thanksgiving Day!
