WOW ! Pumpkins have such a wide variety of possibilities ! I’m SURE the first person to find a pumpkin never imagined how much fun they could be. This is our FOURTH year to Party with the Pumpkins and Mrs. Debbie ! With a review of my blog postings of the past, I have found a treasure trove of fun pumpkin play for everyone. But for my special Pumpkin Parties, I love to keep things fresh, and I have a lot of new material to add to the mixture of music, activities and crafts to share.
First, enjoy some pumpkin fun, and get pump-ed up for the season’s best by reviewing the music, activities, and links on my previous posts: Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween
Then, Enroll right away for our pumpkin event. Plan to Plump up with your favorite pumpkin wear (even if it is just a pair of pumpkin decorated socks), and join us for:
The Annual Pumpkin Party, on Saturday Oct. 8th
at InTune Studios, 1037 S. Florida Ave. Suite 125, in Lakeland
9:30 am. – For BABIES up to 2 years old
10:30 am. For FAMILIES with children from 1 – 7 years old (age flexible, just ask)
I am so excited to add the new “pumpkin party” just for babies. I have not had them separate before, and the typical family party is not BEST suited for the little ones. I’ve been having so much fun developing a curriculum with songs, activities, and crafts that will make this a special celebration of the season for families with babies – during the class, and for many weeks to follow.
AND, the Pumpkin Party for families is getting totally re-plumped with new material. Kindermusik’s music download site, play.kindermusik.com, has been inspiring. There are not necessarily a lot of songs specifically about pumpkins, but Mrs. Debbie’s brain just starts buzzing with ideas as I pour over the wealth of music found there ! The songs we use will be fun with the themes I have planned for our pumpkin play, and the music will outlive the pumpkin phase, offering fun and memories with the ever evolving themes of childhood. The crafts will be a fun addition to your season’s decorations, and will become props for continued play at home.
The themes planned for this year’s Pumpkin Party include:
- Planting and Growing Pumpkins
- Pumpkin Patch Creatures
- Pumpkin Play
- Dancing Pumpkins
- Pumpkins in the Kitchen, from carving, baking seeds, and making pumpkin pie
- Pumpkin Head Scarecrows
- Decorating Pumpkins
- The beautiful glow of pumpkins at night
Of course, I always plan too much for our limited time, but our party evolves according to the people who come to play. Whoooo will come and join me???
Enroll right away so I can prepare effectively for our fun event. PLUS, as soon as you enroll, I will send an email with a Playlist, and a download code, so you can start listening to the music right away. You and your children can become familiar with the songs by the time the class starts, making the event ever so much more engaging.
Enroll ONLINE for the Pumpkin Party for Babies, just $20. While there, you might also take advantage of the discounts for an extra class, and enroll for the November Winter Wonderland as well.
Enroll ONLINE for the Pumpkin Party for Families. $20 for first child, $10 for each sibling 1-5 yrs. includes craft items.
