Halloween Fun for Preschoolers

Rachel and I have done a lot of things with pumpkins. You can check out most of them at Quirky Momma on my post about Preschool Halloween Activities.

But Rachel was also just excited to clean out her pumpkin so we could carve it into a jack-o-lantern.


She was very curious about the pumpkin and couldn't wait to see what was inside of it.


I was proud of her curiosity since she often gets squirmy about things she isn't familiar with and pumpkins guts are definitely slimy and unfamiliar to her.


She separated the pulp from the seeds.


She washed the seeds.


She laid the seeds out to dry.


We used these pumpkin seeds in some of the activities in my Quirky Momma post that I mentioned above.
