It is just another day after school, I pick up the kids and it is time to spend some time outdoor after all day in class. Fresh air and exploring new things. Today we are going to do something different, something new to them, we will plant pumpkin seeds.🎃 We prepared the soil, filled the trays with sand, fill 2 seeds in each hole and cover them with more sand.
Pumpkins are not only used for decoration, they have so many health benefits. Pumpkins are full of vitamins, minerals and low of calories. In addition to that… there is so many creative ways to include them in your diet! Salad, soup, risotto, pasta, dessert… and they can even be a substitute for butter!
Did you know eating pumpkin can reduce the risk of diabetes, heart deseases and offer protection against asthma? These are just some of the multiple benefits of eating pumpkins. I can’t wait for the seeds to grow and eat our own and ecological pumpkins!
I must admit we took three times longer than a single person would have… But life with kids is so much fun!
