"She flung the beans through the open window and sent Jack to bed without his supper..."
I came across this idea when looking for an image for vintage pumpkins. I thought I had saved the link, but I can't find it to share it with you (sorry). However during the search, I found a similar activity here and here
There is nothing more tender than the innocence of a child and it makes me a little sad to know that my kiddies are growing so fast that soon all the little fairy tales will be just that, tales.
A thought I had to make this activity a little extra special was to make little packets of 'magic pumpkin seeds' and share them at Halloween or during Thanksgiving.
I painted and wrote the words "Graines de Citrouille Magiques". If you follow along, you may recall our children attend a French school and therefore, they have become my little French tutors and we (I ) try to use French every chance we (I) get.
I made the little envelopes out of craft paper...
This Image from The Graphic Fairy could easily be used to print right onto the craft paper. Just cut paper to size to fit the printer.
And since we're in the topic of magic pumpkin seeds.....
Every year I roast pumpkin seeds for the kiddies, but since we have yet to carve our pumpkins I went to the store to buy some already made ones. And of course, I had to have one or two (or three) to taste. But they were extremely salty and I thought maybe if I rinsed the salt off, I could have some....(I know,who does that?)
Moral of the story - homemade is the way to go! But we already knew that, right?
Build some memories today!
