Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt

I couldn't resist the display of fallish things outside the grocery store today and came home with 10 mini-pumpkins.

Here's what Max (the 5 year old) and I did with them:

I hid them around the house for Max to find.

Once he'd found all ten, he did the hiding and I was the finder.  I found one on the toilet seat and he "helped" me find the rest of his hiding places!

Then he invented a pumpkin game in which he made a path of toys, we rolled a dice and hopped our pumpkins from toy to toy.  LOVE this kid's imagination.

I suggested we decorate them, but he thinks they're too little.  We'll see......

Do you have any more fun ideas for us?

wonky houses say, "We may not have it all together, but together we have it all."

Got out the good camera while the light was nice.
