Pumpkin Activity Pages

Get the Pumpkin Halloween Activity pages.  The twins have forever loved these pages and when they were younger – starting around two, I would pull out fun activity pages to do with them.  Once they hit all day school age, they were cool with homework because they have been doing it their whole life!   That was my strategy and it worked.
