Preprimary teacher Colleen Blumer likes to present her students with hands-on opportunities in nature. In the case of carving this pumpkin, it was not only a hands-on experience, but also a hands-in experience! These kindergartners enjoyed surgically removing the innards of the pumpkin and extracting each and every slippery seed. The end goal was not only creating a Halloween jack-o’-lantern, but to rinse and soak the seeds for crisping up later in the oven. Fun, fun fun!
