More Pumpkin Fun Tips:

  • Don't like the idea of carving a pumpkin? Paint one instead! Here's some great examples.
  • Use your pumpkins for serving bowls!  For the small to medium pumpkins - hallow them out, spray the interior with a good coating of spray oil and fill them with dips and spreads.  Stuff a holiday themed napkin inside and fill with nuts and pretzels. Larger pumpkins can even be used as coolers - fill them with ice and insert your cold drinks!
  • Don't throw away the seeds after you hollow out your pumpkin - dry them and roast them up to eat!
  • Pumpkins come in a variety of colors too so pick up some of them to have fun with.

A FEW PUMPKIN FACTS:
  • Pumpkins contain potassium and Vitamin A.
  • Pumpkins are used for feed for animals.
  • Pumpkin flowers are edible.
  • Pumpkins are members of the vine crops family called cucurbits.
  • Pumpkins originated in Central America.
  • The name pumpkin originated from "pepon" – the Greek word for "large melon."
  • Pumpkins are 90 percent water.
  • Pumpkins are fruit.
  • Colonists sliced off pumpkin tops; removed seeds and filled the insides with milk, spices and honey. This was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie.
