Troy’s been wondering what is inside a pumpkin, so we decided to check it out!
I got these sweet little pumpkins at a grocery store for $1.
We thought it would be easy to cut open a little pumpkin….WRONG! I started using a knife and these pumpkin carving tools. I got these for like 30 cents last year after Halloween last year at Target. So, after the knife didn’t really work, I used a hammer, screwdriver, and eventually a saw! It was one tough pumpkin. And Troy used his tools as well 🙂
Inside we saw tons of seeds. We had fun getting them out.
Troy spent about an hour “drilling” and using his other tools on the pumpkin. It was a fun activity and Troy really used his imagination.
After getting all the seeds out, I roasted them. I also made pumpkin puree out of the pumpkin flesh and made pumpkin pancakes later! Yum!
