Pumpkins

Pumpkins

Start off your day with your daily routine. Daily routines should consist of the same things everyday. See what I mentioned in my first lesson plan. Talk to your child about pumpkins. If you didn’t go pumpkin picking yet, there’s still time to go.

If you took your child pumpkin picking help them draw a face onto the pumpkin and cut the top of the pumpkin off and take out all the seeds, then carve the face into the pumpkin.

Visual Arts: Painting with apple stencils. You will need half of an apple, orange washable paint, and white paper. Cut the apple in half, dip the apple into the orange washable paint and have your child print the pumpkin on the page.

Science: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds. You will need, 1 cup of pumpkin seeds from a fresh pumpkin, 2 teaspoons of melted butter, and salt and pepper for taste. First you should heat your oven to 350. Wash your pumpkin seeds with cold water, then pat seeds dry with a paper towel. Spread the seeds in an ungreased baking pan. Stir the pumpkin seeds with melted butter, and sprinkle it with salt and pepper for taste. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown, stir once. Completely cool the pumpkin seeds before serving.
