Pumpkin Pies


Cut out poster board circles and give one to each child. Provide orange tempera paint and ask children to paint their circles. While the paint is still wet, let children sprinkle an assortment of spices -- nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, ground cloves -- onto their "pumpkin pies." As children smell the aroma, ask Which senses are you using to enjoy your pies?
