(Read more about Natural Learning on our resource page.)

Have you hugged a pumpkin today?

Naturemummy blogs at Motherhood: my latest adventure.

Ailia, 10mo daughter of Dionna at Code Name: Mama, enjoys her first trip to the pumpkin patch.

Zelda is delighted to have been left in this pile of pumpkins.

Stefanie blogs at very, very fine.

From Anne: “Pickin’ My First Pumpkin”

What do you do when you pick a pumpkin that weighs as much as you do?

Use all your charm to get Daddy to lift it for you.
No babies were harmed in this process.

Shannon blogs at Pineapples & Artichokes.

The pumpkin patch is an annual tradition!

Sarah blogs at Firmly Planted.

Nahualli at the NC State Fair!

It’s a giant boob, Ma!

Kiersten blogs at Minimally Mama.

From Jorje of Momma Jorje: “Sasha calls all jack-o-lantern faces ‘pumpkin pies’ so here
are my two guys, both dressed in Pumpkin Pie shirts for a Halloween party.”
No driving was done in this position!

From Lauren: “We always let our kids draw the faces on their own pumpkins — even as toddlers.
Here, Alrik at 1 year old has made an interesting design. Sam has a patented technique of discerning and carving out a face shape from the marker scribbles.”

“Mikko loves to wield the pumpkin carving knife (pretty much kid-safe) to cut off the tops of the pumpkins and scoop out the guts. Sam then roasts the seeds with butter, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and cayenne powder. Pumpkins are entertainment, food, and decoration all rolled into one!”

Lauren, the picture-taking member of the jack-o’-lantern team
(fewer pumpkin guts to deal with that way), blogs at Hobo Mama.

From Zhandra: “Halloween 2011, my 22 month old daughter signing “orange” because pumpkins are orange.”

“Our 2012 painted pumpkins.”

Nothing sweeter than a hayride with this pumpkin!
