We decided to set out some materials and see what the children would do.
Pumpkins provided the perfect place to poke some push pins.
Not your average Jack O' Lanterns!
Designs and faces and patterns and explosions of colour poured over the pumpkin skin.
Fingers push and pull and children collaborate and create.
Then the children discovered the elastics we added.
Days and days of fun and creating with the pumpkins, tacks and elastics.
Can you spot the math?
Push tack punctures penetrating a perfectly plump pumpkin!
