Exploring our pumpkin

We cut up the pumpkin and the children used lots of descriptive words to tell us how it felt – wet, cold, squiggely and slimy.  They guessed the number of seeds inside saying over a hundred, forty and eighteen and one child said over a hundred million seeds.  They said to us we could make pumpkin pie and flowers.  We asked how can we make flowers? The children told us with the seeds.
