Cooking With Kids: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Encouraging Speech & Creating Yum! Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Don’t toss those pumpkin seeds! Roast them to make a quick and healthy snack.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Ingredients:
- Pumpkin seeds from your jack-o’-lantern
- Olive oil
- Baking pan with raised edges
Parent: Preheat oven to 350º and cut the top off of the pumpkin.
Kiddo: Separate the seeds from the pumpkin “glop”. Rinse and pat them dry with a paper towel. Put the seeds in the baking pan.
If you have a sensory squeamish child, they can use a spoon instead!
Parent: Drizzle the olive oil over the pumpkin seeds and then sprinkle them with salt.
Kiddo: Stir the seeds to coat them with oil then spread them out evenly over the bottom of the baking pan.
