All you do is give the kiddies some ‘magic pumpkin seeds’ and have them plant them outside. Perhaps read them Jack and Beanstalk as a bed time story and when they awake in the morning, a full grown pumpkin (that you placed there over night) greets them. MAGIC! I think it’s such a sweet idea for little ones and I wish I had done this when my kiddies were smaller.
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.
But when I tried to ‘rinse off’ the salt, this is what happened….There was some sort of coating on them become a pasty, nasty mess once it came into contact with water. What do they coat these things with? I can’t believe that I actually ate one (or three). No wonder they were so perfectly white and pretty.
Moral of the story – homemade is the way to go! But we already knew that, right?
Build some memories today!
I will be sharing these magic seeds at these linky parties, thank you for hosting…xo
