Fall Activities for Kids {with Pumpkin Seeds}


Pumpkin seeds make for some fabulous sensory play in the Fall.  They are also great for lots of other Fall activities, especially arts and crafts.  You can buy bags of pumpkin seeds or wait until you carve pumpkins and use those.  Once washed and cleaned you can add color and scent, too!

Coloring and scenting the pumpkin seeds is really easy.  We made ours exactly how we made our Fall scented rice.  All of the colors and scents come together to capture Fall beautifully.

Colored & Scented Pumpkin Seeds (What you Need)
(affiliate links provided for your conveinence)
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Zip Seal Bags
  • Food coloring or liquid watercolors
  • Scent- we made 5 different scents and colors of seeds.  All the seasonings we used can be found in the spice aisle of most stores.


We used:

In a zip seal bag place the desired amount of seeds for each color and scent you wish to make.  Then add a few drops of food coloring or liquid watercolors, scent, and a touch of water.  Seal the bags and let kids help you mix and shake the bags until the seeds are well covered

You can then open the bags and leave the seeds right in the bag to dry. Once dry you can use these seeds in all sorts of ways.  Add the seeds in a bin along with tongs, scoopers, and diggers for some fabulous Fall sensory play.
