October 3-5 Activity Print E-mail
Written by Lori Stancill   
Monday, 24 October 2005

This activity will be fun for the entire family upon returning from a trip to the pumpkin patch.  After returning home from picking out the perfect pumpkin have each family member estimate the number of seeds to be found inside.  Discuss which characteristics of the pumpkin helped each person with his or her estimate.  Cover a work area with newspaper.  Cut the top off the pumpkin and give each family member a scoop of pulp.  Now separate the seeds and count them.  Add numbers together to come up with the correct number of seeds in your pumpkin.  You may want to roast and salt the seeds for a tasty snack!
