Roasted Pumpkin seeds and homemade breads can turn into fall family traditions.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 07, 2013
Fall time is the perfect time to visit the pumpkin patch. Let the kids pick out a pumpkin or two and turn them into a delicious and healthy snack. Cut the pumpkin in half and let the kids spoon out the pumpkin seeds. One can even sneak in a science lesson by observing the seeds with a magnifying glass.
Wash the seeds and let them dry on a piece of cloth. Spray olive oil on a baking pan. Put the seeds on the baking sheet in a single layer and spray them with olive oil. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt and a bit of brown sugar if desired. Bake them at 200 degrees for 5 minutes. Then flip the seeds so they do not stick and bake them for another 5 minutes. Ready is the delicious snack.
Making homemade bread with kids not only makes the house smell good, it elevates the dinner. A bread machine makes bread making a lot easier. Choose among the many recipes and ingredients listed on Kids Activities Blog. Let the kids measure the ingredients and put them inside the bread machine. Set the machine on manual and let the machine mix the ingredients. Let the dough rise until it is needed for dinner.
Another great bread idea is the lazy women bread recipe. The dough can be made in advance and is kept in a container inside the fridge for days until needed. The friendship bread, a yeast experiment lesson with a bonus bread idea, a two ingredient bread recipe, and a soda bread recipe idea are featured on Kids Activities Blog. All recipes can turn into great family traditions for the fall time.
