Pumpkin Carving, Pumpkin Seeds, Pumpkin Pie, and a Parade!

In Bumblebee Boulevard (Room 6) we took part in numerous fall activities this week!

First we opened our pumpkin and looked inside. We saw lots of seeds and some "pumpkin goo." Each child got a turn to guess how many seeds were in our pumpkin. (469!!! WOW!)

Then we worked together to carve our class pumpkin!

We let the seeds dry overnight and cooked them the next day. We made one batch with olive oil and garlic salt and the other with butter cooking spray, sugar, and cinnamon.

After we tasted both kinds we surveyed our class to see which kind we liked best. We found out that most of us liked the cinnamon and sugar seeds best...but they both were SO yummy!

The following day we had a fall celebration where we ate some pumpkin pie! The children were curious as to what pumpkins were used for so we brought in a pie to try along with some candy corn mix and apple juice!

Mmmm....we can't wait to eat it!

Pie sure makes us thirsty!

Finally to end our week we watched the kindergarten classes, led by our principal Mr. Klipsch, in a halloween parade! The child loved Mr. Klipsch's costume, seeing their kindergarten friends, and giving high fives!

Waiting for the parade to start!

We had such a fun festive week!
