Last week Ethan’s school to and fro book mentioned that they had taken the children to purchase pumpkins. They also carved them in class. I love that Ethan got the chance to take part in this activity at school with his school friends. I have always said his learning at school is more about the experiences they can provide. On Friday Ethan came home from school with his pumpkin. It was a Minion Pumpkin!
Ethan was very excited about his pumpkin and babbled away trying to tell us all about it. We can only assume that Ethan helped to paint his pumpkin yellow, whist his TA’s made the eyes and added the other details. His motor skills aren’t ready to paint straight lines like that.
Ethan loved his Minion pumpkin, he helped him change the channels on the Skybox…
and he sat on the sofa with him to watch TV on Friday evening and Saturday morning.
It made us feel like we had our very own version of Wilson from the movie Cast Away!
Unfortunately the affection Ethan showed his Minion Pumpkin meant that he didn’t last for very long. It was lovely to see Ethan become so attached to something. He has never really shown an interest like that before. He has had his obsessions but not an attachment. We will never forget Ethan’s Minion pumpkin.

Aw that was a great pumpkin. You will have to make another one with him a Wilson mark 2. We made a minion pumpkin, they are very popular in our house too. @SSAAchievements
We didn’t get to make another one this year but I will be looking into painting pumpkins with him next year x
Aww! What a cute pumpkin. It sounds like Ethan really loved it x
He really did, he was so excited babbling about it when he got home from school x
What a fun activity – looks like he definitely enjoyed it!
He really did x
It looks brilliant! How sweet that Ethan was so attached to it, too x
He really was, its rare to see him like that x
That is an amazing minion pumpkin! & it sounds like its short life was lived to the full! #SSAmazingAchievements
He really did ;0) x
I saw this photo on #SundayPhoto and loved it – very clever. It’s lovely that he can become so attached to the pumpkin that it didn’t last long. That happened to us last year; very soggy very quickly!
Enjoy Halloween, whatever you choose to do
Thank you. The minion did have to be removed without Ethan seeing ;0) x
Well done Ethan, that is one lovely looking pumpkin! It went very nicely with his tshirt too.
I guess I’m glad for you, in a way, that Ethan’s affection for it has now dwindled because it would start to get a bit soft and mouldy by now – you wouldn’t want that taken to bed!
Thanks for linking up with #SSAmazingAchievements 🙂
lol no the minion wouldn’t have been going to bed with him. We did have to remove it when he wasn’t looking x
