Pumpkin Seeds

Hi friends,

We just came back from our district's fall break...two weeks of wonderfulness! Apparently, all of my kiddos visited pumpkin patches in our area and are totally into everything pumpkin.

I've been wanting to incorporate pumpkin seeds into our daily activities, especially math. After doing some research on easy ways to dye the seeds, my mom and I came up with a very easy and clean way to do it.

Preferable using already dried pumpkin seeds, place them in a plastic bag. Add several drops of food coloring. Close the bag and spread the color all over the seeds.

Once the seeds are covered with the desired color, place them on a napkin and in the microwave for 20 seconds. Let it cool for about a minute and save the seeds in a clean plastic bag. Once the seeds are dried it should not stain hands.
Ta-da! The final product!
Care to share how would you use pumpkin seeds in your classroom?

Keep learning!
