Learning at Home

Pumpkin exploration and making Pumpkin seeds!

You Will Need:

1 pumpkin, cooking spray, salt or cinnamon, kitchen knife, baking sheet, nonstick cooking spray, paper towel, spatula


First, cut the pumpkin in half and encourage your child to explore its insides After he is finished playing with the pumpkin, have him help separate the seeds so you can roast them together.

Pumpkin Seeds Roasting
Step 1: Separate the seeds from the pumpkin guts. Rinse the seeds just until they are free of any stringy pumpkin matter.

Step 2: Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 3: Put the seeds on a paper towel and let them dry for a few minutes.

Step 4: Spray a baking sheet with butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray. Put the seeds on the baking sheet in a single layer, turning to coat lightly with the spray. Sprinkle the seeds lightly with salt or cinnamon, if desired.

Step 5: Put the baking sheet in the oven. Cook the seeds for 10 to 20 minutes, or until brown and slightly crisp, turning once in the middle of cooking. Allow the seeds to set out to cool down before you and your child taste them.


Infants and toddlers should not eat the seeds – they’re a choking hazard. They can still explore and paint the pumpkin, though.
