We have had many pumpkin activities this week as pumpkins are all around us. Late last week we roasted pumpkin seeds from the pumpkin we had carved. We have been offering these to children all week and have a very mild response. Today we once again opened up another pumpkin to look inside (we are going to have a jack-o-lantern when we walk on the line tomorrow!) and found many seeds. It was suggested to the child to once again taste a roasted pumpkin seed. Pretty soon there was a line and asking for more! Ask your child if they had some roasted pumpkin seeds today! One adventurous child wanted to eat the raw seeds from inside the pumpkin!
Scooping seeds out again!
"More pumpkin seeds please!"
We took this theme into art this week as well and offered pumpkin painting!
These little pumpkins were from the farmers market downtown Ann Arbor.
