Get messy with us as we dissect a pumpkin, squash, and gourd. We will decorate mini pumpkins together and make our own yummy pumpkin seeds. Then, we will meet a few of our animals that like to eat seeds! For those little ones who just can’t wait to be a Young Chef. Here’s something just for you. APEC Little Cooks will have fun learning about an animal, and then help make a delicious snack to compliment what they’ve learned. All materials included. Limited to 8 participants.
