pounding pumpkins

Here is a great way to get one last activity out of your pumpkins before they bite the dust.  You will need:  pumpkins, golf tees, and a hammer.  

 Pounding pumpkins was always one of my favorite activities in my classroom.  The children loved it too.

Abby tried it, but was not a fan.  

She did like pounding the golf tees into the pumpkin pie play dough.  Tomorrow we will try pushing my sewing pins into the pumpkin.  Abby has an obsession with my pins so I think that will go over a little bit better.

I could see this along with the pumpkin pie play dough being a hit at the kid's table after Thanksgiving dinner.  Let me know if you give it a try.
