Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins

It is fall, nearing Halloween and so pumpkins are everywhere. We've been eating pumpkin muffins, pumpkin roll and of course been doing pumpkin crafts.
Here are a few of our favorite pumpkin things - -


Pumpkin Muffins
1 box spice cake
1 can pumpkin
1/4 cup water

Combine all ingredients and place in lined muffin pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.


The Pumpkin Patch Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs is a great book that goes through a simple version of a farmer growing a pumpkin and then carving it. During each part of the process, the author has included a scripture verse. I love how the pumpkin all carved with a candle inside is a symbol of how we should let our light shine before others. There are several sites that have materials to go along with the book including 1+1+1=1 and Creative Bible Study.
