This week I’m… getting messy with May!

It’s Autumn and the Harvest season. Time to get into food with May. And I mean really into food. All hands in.

Halloween and Thanksgiving are great opportunities to work with pumpkins. May’s interest and ability to reach forward (or thrust forward as she does) is growing. Pumpkins offer a great contrast in textures: the smooth, cool shell and the slimy, stringy guts littered with seeds. Plus, pumpkin guts make the silliest sploosh sound when you pat with your hands.

Also, they make tasty treats. But, I’m not a food blogger. I wouldn’t trust my pumpkin recipes – go see Tinned Tomatoes or Maison Cupcake for that.

Here are some photos of our favorite model – and her baldy mom (I don’t want to sound vain, but I defy anyone to say that cancer hasn’t turned me into a supermodel). May enjoyed and I hope your little ones do too!

What kind of messy play does your special needs kiddie enjoy?

    We like to make our own Flubber/Slime, tinted water, and also our own playdoh with jello packets for extra smell!

    You both look oh-so-beautiful! Enjoy the Fall!
