After our fun Pumpkin Investigation the other day, we decided to use some of the seeds for a fun craft!
First we dyed the seeds by putting some in a plastic bag and adding a small splash of vinegar and food coloring! We made green, orange, and brown (red, green, and yellow food coloring). The kids had fun squishing the seeds inside the bags to coat them.
Next we laid them out on paper towels to dry. It took several hours, so we ended up finishing the craft the next day.
I printed out a pumpkin outline I found online, and had the kids cut it out and glue it on their choice of colored paper. Then we just glued the seeds on to make the pumpkin!
