Magic Pumpkin Seeds


Take your children outdoors and let them toss pumpkin seeds onto the ground. Tell children you believe the seeds are "magic seeds." The next day, before children have arrived, rake up the seeds and place small pumpkins (enough so each child has a pumpkin) in their places. Take children outdoors to see what has happened to the magic seeds. Let each child take one of the small pumpkins home.
