Once the mommies cut open the pumpkins, the kiddos loved scooping out the seeds and playing with the orange sticky insides (Asher & Adley were definitely the most into it. I think Adley's motivation was more trying to eat it, lol).
On the next page of their booklets, the kids had pictures of 5 lil' pumpkins. The children cleaned off their seeds and then glued 1 seed in a pumpkin, then 2, then 3, then 4, & then 5. They really enjoyed cleaning the seeds & getting to use the glue of course.
For the final page, the kids got to create a picture on the page using their pumpkin's guts-Super fun!
The next activity they engaged in was a fun science experiment where they had to guess if their pumpkin was going to float or sink if thrown into water. Once all hypothesizes had been made, they actually got to put their pumpkins into water & test out their theories. Adley got a lil' too close & definitely got soaked-She loved it.
After a story, the kids got to enjoy some lunch, cookies, & play time! Overall, a wonderful time as always. Shout out to Amber for putting it all together for this get-together. The girls are still talking about how fun it was!!!
