It’s finally that time of the year! From the farmer’s markets to the haunted hayrides, the fall season is definitely one people look forward to. In honor of National Pumpkin Day, which is October 26th, here are some fun and engaging ways to incorporate pumpkins into your fall festivity plans!
Pumpkin Carving Ideas
As one of the most popular pumpkin-related activities, pumpkin carving is an activity that can keep the family occupied for a long time. If you’re concerned about your little ones handling carving utensils, there are “kids carving kits” sold in almost all local supermarket stores that are designed specifically for those of younger age! Here are some ideas for what and how you might want to carve your pumpkins!
Before you carve your pumpkin, you must gut it, getting all the seeds and “gunk” out of it. Why let those seeds go to waste? Toasted pumpkin seeds are one of the most delicious snacks to enjoy during the fall season. They taste crisp, crunchy, and fresh, just like the fall atmosphere! Better yet, you can do or add whatever you want to your pumpkin seeds. Put some seeds in a bag for your kids, put some in a bowl to share in the kitchen, or have them all for yourself! Here is the classic way you can cook your pumpkin seeds for a nice tasty treat.
Pumpkin Painting Ideas
For some people, carving pumpkins can be more of a hassle and a tedious process than it is fun. And, for those with very little kids, painting pumpkins might be a better idea. The awesome part of painting pumpkins is that you can use any color, style, brush type or vision you want to! Plus, these pumpkins will last longer! Here are some creative ideas for painting pumpkins.
The fall season is definitely one worth the wait, so take advantage of the season and enjoy some pumpkin fun with your family. It’s also a great season to crack down on a home you have been eyeing throughout the year. Contact me today!
