Autumn week in our class. We dug into a pumpkin to see what was inside. “Holy Cow, that sure is yucky”,  they observed. We also learned what sin was this week, so we made the connection that the yuck in the pumpkin is like the sin inside of us. God can clean it out. Then, when we are filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus shines out of us like the candle shines out of the pumpkin. (We carved a cross in ours)

Later we decided to roast the pumpkin seeds. I had to take them home to do it and brought them back the next day. We enjoyed them during snack time.

Ingredients:

Pumpkin seeds, unshelled

Avocado oil (or your favorite oil)

Salt to taste

Separate the seeds from the pumpkin, wash. Throw the pumpkin goop in the compost pile.
