Last week in the spirit of Thanksgiving and all its autumn-vegetable and pumpkin-spice-flavored love, our Sweet Peas Kindergarten Class built a fire and roasted their own sweet potatoes on it. The children loved gathering kindling and watching the fire as it grew large enough to roast their potatoes. Sweet potatoes were enjoyed by both the Sweet Peas Kindergarten and Sunflower Garden Nursery classes. It was an exciting morning!
The following day they took a fresh pumpkin which had been the centerpiece of their nature table and peeled it, cooked it and turned it into a delicious pumpkin pie. They did not use the grain free crust but otherwise followed this recipe below from Wellness Mama. To top it off the children whipped cream and then added in a tiny amount of maple syrup with a hint of vanilla. Delicious!
In time for Thanksgiving, gather your children into the kitchen to make this wonderful recipe below. We are thankful to all of those who make Bayou Village School a unique and magical place to send our children to school each day. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
