Autumn Explorations
October 22, 2019
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

“Pumpkins, gourds and squash make terrific pounding surfaces,” declare Sandra Duncan and Jody Martin in their popular book, Bringing the Outside In. “Once the gourd has a sufficient number of holes in it, take it to the garden or nearby forest for woodland creatures.”  And, here’s another pumpkin idea, just in time for Halloween and/or Autumn explorations:

“Scoop the ‘guts’ from three to four large pumpkins and place in a shallow storage bin. Invite children to explore the ooey gooey seeds, fibrous strands, and pulp with their fingers or even their toes! Provide items such as measuring cups, mashers, and spoons to continue the discoveries.”

Be careful someone's not allergic to the guts of a pumpkin or have dry, cracked skin. When I would gut a pumpkin, my hands would burn.
