Pumpkin, Rubber Bands, and Golf Tees

When I saw some really cool Hands on Pumpkin Math, over at Fun A Day, and what her kids did with push pins, rubber bands and a pumpkin, I knew that would be right up our alley! 
I wanted to give the kids the opportunity to use the hammers and golf tees, since it such a great experience in hand/eye coordination and fine motor skill.  So, I put out the pumpkin, rubber bands, golf tees and wooden hammers. 

I did show them how to stretch the rubber bands from on peg to the other, and then they took it from there.

It was a great effort in team work, cooperation and lots of language skills too!  Thank you so much for the inspiration, Fun A Day!
