Andrea usually works with Connor on his school stuff and his homework. Unfortunately, this past week was too artsy for her. Connor had to pick out a book, identify the main character, decorate a pumpkin to look like the main character, and complete a worksheet. Not something a Kindergartener can accomplish individually.
Connor picked out a Halloween book about a cat named Splat, and we dove in. I had him color his pumpkin black with a Sharpie marker, made ears out of black duct tape, a hat with paper and a purple crayon, eyes and mouth out of paper and tape, and viola! We were done. Allison helped out quite a bit too and did really well going over the worksheet with him.
I took a picture of the two of them and our proud accomplishment.
