Hammer Time...Pumpkin Style

This was a great big hit with my kiddos today.  I took one of our big pumpkins and put it in the table with golf tees and hammers.  I showed the kids how to hammer the tees into the pumpkin.  Once the tees were in there nice and tight, they were almost impossible to get out.  So, I got out the pliers and showed them how to use them to pry out the tees.  They felt so grown up, hammering and plying.  An all day activity for sure.  Great for hand/eye coordination, problem solving, fine motor development (you know, those muscle needed for writing), and language development, to name just a few of the things they were doing while they were hammering away!
