Planting Pumpkins!

Children from both classrooms had the opportunity to help plant pumpkins this month. Each child had the chance to get their hands dirty and work on getting a green thumb. (An expression they were both delighted with and confused by!) We planted both orange and white pumpkins.

Pumpkin Seeds In The Shell, Roasted Salted Container 8 oz Container  11.49

First they organized and counted the pots. Then they had the chance to fill each with soil and water. Last, each child created a hole in the soil and deposited 3 seeds, which were then covered with additional soil and patted gently. 

All of the kids liked the idea of the seeds "taking a nap" to get big and strong. There were lots of "ssshhhhh's" and "careful, the seeds are sleeping" said. Very cute!

Look how much our pumpkins have grown!!!
