Growing pumpkin seeds in preschool

During our pumpkin week in preschool, we cut open the pumpkin to investigate what was inside of it. We pulled out all of the seeds and stringy pulp. We decided to try planting some of the seeds in cups.

Each student filled a cup with some soil and put a few pumpkin seeds in the dirt. They covered the seeds lightly with a little bit of dirt, watered the seeds, and placed the cup in the sunny window.

It has only been two weeks and look how some of them have already sprouted and started to grow:

    I love the idea of growing pumpkin seeds! I definitely want to do this next year!! I am really loving your blog. I had to move it up in my reader list so I don’t miss so many things!

    We grew a sweet potato last year and that thing grew by inches daily. It was crazy big. The students liked seeing the pumpkin seeds grow, too. These seeds did well and really took off growing in the cups.
