Littles Learning Link Up: Pumpkin Fun Round Up

Welcome to Littles Learning Link Up. Each month you will find:
  • A seasonal round-up (toward the beginning of the month)
  • A guest post featuring crafts, activities, tips, snack ideas or other early childhood topics. (toward the end of the month)
  • Posts where I share what I have been up to with my preschoolers and/or early elementary children.
Each week, I will host a link up, where you can share either what you have been up to recently, or old posts that may go with the theme.  Feel free to link up more than one post.

Each week I will continue to feature a couple of posts from those that have been linked up. 

I hope you will continue to share your wonderful posts, and I hope you will find something new to try with your child.

It would be great for everyone to stop by and visit the other linked-up posts as well. Check them out, leave some comments, pin those that interest you. Let's make this a real party and socialize with each other.

It's time for this month's Round Up

Well, fall is certainly making itself known these last couple of weeks. There has been a definite chill in the air. I decided it would be fun to share some pumpkins ideas this month. As we don't celebrate Halloween, I have limited the posts to fun activities, crafts, and recipes you can do with pumpkins. Just pumpkins. I was so glad to find all these great ideas that don't include jack-o-lanterns. I hope you will find some that you love too.
