Early last week I cut our pumpkin in half and let the children remove the seeds and stringy inards;
I asked if any of them had ever tried roasted pumpkin seeds and if they would like to make some. They were excited and then one of them eagerly announced that we would also be making some pumkin pie. Hmmm, I hadn’t planned on that.
We discussed the steps involved in making pumpkin pie and the children thought that it would take a very long time but they still wanted to try. The first day though we just took out the seeds and roasted them;
We ate them for afternoon snack when the older children were back from school. That evening I steamed the pumkin so the following day the children could work on preparing the pie filling.
They mashed the cooked pumkin;
then added some milk, eggs, and spices;
Eventually we had our finished product;
What a delicious end to a three day project. We also have enough pumpkin puree in the freezer for future projects too 🙂
