Pumpkin Seed Play Dough

I have already shared with you our pumpkin seed soup but our pumpkin seed play didn’t stop there. The children also enjoyed spending time playing with pumpkin seed play dough…

At  the table, the children found four tubs of pumpkin seeds with plastic cups and spoons.  The children jumped right in and began their play by scooping, feeling, and exploring the seeds…

The children were loving the process as it was but then one of my parents showed up and gave us some beautiful orange homemade play dough that  would be a fun addition to our pumpkin seed sensory tubs…

The children were free to explore the seeds and the orange play dough any way they wished but since we had started off our morning circle by talking about and exploring real pumpkins, the combination of the two materials naturally invited the children to make their own pumpkins…

So the children pushed the pumpkin seeds into the orange play dough to make their own “real” pumpkins…

It was actually quite interesting because once the seeds began to get folded into the orange play dough, it looked very much like the children had scooped out the pulp and seeds of a real pumpkin…

And later in the day, that is exactly what we did only the insides of our real pumpkins were much more ooey and gooey!
