Pumpkin Palooza

Fall has officially begun, and in our house, this time of year is all about pumpkins.  Don’t you just love a good pumpkin recipe, craft, and activity? My favorite Fall activity is our annual family trip to a pumpkin patch.  I love getting out in the fresh air with my boys and taking their pictures surrounded by pumpkins.  I highly recommend searching out a pumpkin patch/corn maze in your area and making it part of your weekend plans. Pumpkin crafts are popular in our house this time of year too… especially with my four year old.  Last year, we made a simple pumpkin headband. To make a pumpkin headband with your little one: 1) Cut out a pumpkin shape from orange construction paper and a pumpkin stem from green construction paper.  Glue the stem and googly eyes onto the pumpkin.  Draw a nose and mouth with a crayon or marker. 2) Cut  two 1 1/2 inch strips of paper, and decorate them with stickers. 3) Staple the ends of the strips to the pumpkin. 4) Size the headband to the child's head, and staple the ends together.  Cute,  right? Finally, it wouldn’t be a pumpkin palooza without a delicious pumpkin recipe.  I recently made a delicious pumpkin loaf with cream cheese filling (that you can find here). Or you can check out some of the yummy Canadian Living recipes for Fall.  Here a few that I am anxious to try: Pumpkin Apple Soup Fresh Pumpkin Pie Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing I hope you are having a great Fall, and  I will be back soon with some spooktacular Halloween fun! ♥ Gina (aka East Coast Mommy)
