Fall Fun

We've been doing all kinds of fun fall activities around here. Many have centered around pumpkins. Here are a couple activities we've done in the past couple days.

Roasting pumpkin seeds...in "princess" attire of course...YUM! Wash the seeds, let dry, add a little oil and seasonings (I used sea salt and a sprinkle of garlic powder and paprika) and roast at 350 degrees (stirring occasionally) until golden brown. Scooping the seeds out of the pumpkin was a great sensory activity. Esme wasn't too fond of the slimy texture. Ellerie loved separating the seeds and putting them in a bowl.


Painting pumpkins...They sprinkled glitter on the wet paint too!

  1. Such sweet princess outfits (and princesses). Nice painting station. Almost painted pumpkins but ran out of time. My girls colored a pumpkin with crayons the day after they watched daddy carve a pumpkin. Their faces lite up when they showed me their creation. Love those flower painting pallets...great idea.
