We had a little pumpkin drama on the day Little M brought her pumpkin home. No need to point fingers (since the only innocent party was me). When the pumpkin cracked there were tears… and consequences were doled out… but then I had an idea. Why let this sad experience go to waste? Why not turn it into a science experiment? A rotting pumpkin experiment in fact!
That is just what we did. I brought out our nature journal and we made a few initial observations. We also talked about what we thought would happen to our pumpkin.
Day 10… I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be able to stand it. This one might be a little too gross for me.
Quirky Momma made it until the bugs came… yikes I don’t know if I could do that! I love the individual science journal. I’m thinking the kids might get field journals in their stockings.
I love the idea of testing preservation techniques. We just might have to try that next year!
