Pumpkin Investigation and Sensory Play with Cinnamon Sprinkle Goop

Pin It


I love fall time.  The weather, the associated scents of pumpkin and cinnamon, the holidays, and our family adventure traditions. 

One family tradition is going to the Farm each year to pick pumpkins. This family adventure is one of my favorites.  It has corn mazes, corn cannons,  pig races, and a corn house for the kids, just to name a few activities we can do while there.  It is such a joy to watch the kids take it all in each year.  And we always come home with way too many pumpkins, or so I think once we get home. 

This year we decorated with a few plain pumpkins and we then did pour paint tape resistant art with one, and glitter glue and googly eyes with one.  Now we had a few more pumpkins that needed to be put to good use. I set out to let the boys investigate  the inside of a pumpkin for the FIRST time this year (we never carve the pumpkins since the boys are still so young).  And of course we couldn't just cut the pumpkin up for some scientific examination, we had to play with it too.

Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn Science Experiment

We love Candy Science!  It is fun and easy for young kids to enjoy. I also love that we get to use up some holiday candy so we do not eat it.  Last year on Mamas Like Me, she shared More Candy Experiments.  In this post I noticed the Candy Corn Experiment. I made a mental note to come back and try it this year with the kids. Today we got out our Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn and put it to use in a fun candy science experiment for the kids.
