Patchwork’s Pumpkin Party

Patchwork Nursery held a fabulous orange themed pumpkin party on Friday 31st October from 3.00 pm to 4.30 pm.  The children all looked wonderful in their costumes!

With all things orange and sensory the children had a number of activities to keep themselves entertained!  They were able to get their hands messy with large pumpkins filled with orange squidgy jelly and jelly filled trays with cups, spoons and shape cutters.

They also had the opportunity to get creative with the orange playdough, by painting their own pictures (on orange paper, of course!) and decorating their own pumpkin pictures with orange seeds, lentils, rice and pieces of chopped up tissue paper.

We were also lucky enough to have great weather for the children to enjoy the Nursery garden and all the outdoor toys.  Many of them were found whizzing around on the bikes and scooters or playing in the sand pit!

After all the excitement of the crafty, creative and somewhat messy activities, the children enjoyed some delicious sandwiches and snacks, followed by Debby’s magnificent home-made cupcakes.  The parents were also able to enjoy some refreshments!

A huge thank you to all those who were able to attend, to Debby for all her hard work and organisation and to the staff for their help and support.
