Boo to You! from the library. The mice are having a harvest party but the cat's not invited! The kids liked the story but what really got their attention was the cat's teeth made from pumpkin seeds on the front cover.
After carving our pumpkins, I saved some of the seeds, rinsed them, left them to dry and then we squish painted them. We used plastic baggies and two kinds of paint: washable poster paint and acrylic paint from Craft Project Ideas. Both worked well. I didn't put much paint in the bags and made sure to spread them out on the waxed paper to dry so they didn't stick together.
This was by far their favorite part of the activity.
We did a similar craft for Ehlert's Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf using maple seeds, so I hope you'll check that out too!
