What's Inside of a Pumpkin? - A Pumpkin Exploration


Halloween seems to = pumpkin.
Pumpkins are all around us -
pumpkin based foods, crafts, decorations, etc....

The perfect time for a pumpkin exploration with the Lil Divas.

What's Inside a Pumpkin?



We were finally ready to carve our pumpkins -
we typically wait until right before Halloween due to the heat here in FL.
Our pumpkins do not tend to last very long after they've been carved.


The Lil Divas were excited to dig in & see what was inside.


We had some fun scooping it all out in preparation of our carving.


To showcase what they learned we made this simple pumpkin book


To make the book I folded a piece of orange construction paper and made the stem along the fold so that it would open and close like the spine of a book. 

For the inside we used the pumpkin seeds we scooped out of our pumpkins and some white yarn to represent the goop inside.


The Lil Divas glued the yarn inside as they desired to represent what they had seen in their pumpkins.


Then they added some pumpkin seeds.


Our finished products:


While the girls worked on their books I worked on this:


The Littlest Diva had her heart set on a Dora pumpkin!
I found a cute template to use and started poking & carving.

She was very pleased with the result! 
Phew, thankfully Mommy did a good job!


The Oldest Diva was intent on making a scary pumpkin this year!
She drew the face on it herself and daddy helped carve it.


Spooky, right?
I think she did a great job on her scary pumpkin!

She even added a witch hat for the full effect. 



Every year, we also buy mini pumpkins for the girls 
to decorate as they choose.
This year they opted to paint their pumpkins.


Of course every painted pumpkin requires lots & lots of glitter.


How sparkly!



The finished pumpkin masterpieces were very posh indeed.
