Pumpkin Tasting Day

Now what would a GREAT Pumpkin Unit be like without a yummy Pumpkin Tasting Day? 

I sent a request to the most amazing group of parents and they responded with some YUMMY pumpkin treats!  I was shocked at how much the children tried and actually liked! 

Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Butter

Dario was a fan!

Of course, Pumpkin Pie!

Pumpkin Seeds and Pumpkin Marshmallows!!
The children said the marshmallows tasted more like cinnamon that anything else.

One of our sweet parents made us some Pumpkin Cookies to taste!

Mrs. Miskelly, our intern from Winthrop, made Pumpkin Dip and it was a hit!

Chloë approves!

One last favorite was Pumpkin Cake!

Even though it may look like all fun and food, this tasting time followed a very important Social Studies lesson based on producers and consumers.  The children learned that Pumpkin Pie doesn't just appear at the grocery store...there are many steps before that!  But more on that for another post!
