Fall Fun - Geo Pumpkin Learning

Chris Chapman, a family child care provider, posted this neat geo pumpkin on ChildCareInfo's facebook page. The kids loved playing with this in her child care.  Chris mentions in her comments it's good for team work skill building, fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. They got to use it on the light table too, which enabled them to really enjoy the colors of the rubber bands!

Here are some other posts about using geo pumpkins!

These posts show people using: Golf tees, push pins, screws, wooden mallets, rubber bands and, of course, the pumpkins!

This is so great! Geo Pumpkin by Chris Chapman! Thank you for sharing with us!

Share your geo pumpkin experience!


Samantha Marshall, M.A.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on ChildCareInfo.com is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building ChildCareInfo.com.
