National Pumpkin Day is today! A pumpkin is a fruit because it contains seeds. Pumpkins are very versatile: pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, pumpkin butter, and the list goes on. Many people toast and eat pumpkin seeds. Idea: Children could draw a pumpkin on a vine and write pumpkin facts on the leaves.
