Pumpkin and Leaves – Fall Family Bucket List

I was excited when I heard Stephanie over at Wife Mommy and me teamed up with Desiree over at Macke Monologues and Elizabeth with Chasin’ Mason to bring a weekly Fall linkup. On Tuesdays, we share what Fall bucket list item we’ve checked off our list.

So far we have done

  • Meet up with other mom’s for a Halloween play date and dress up Zoe
  • Went to a Fall Festival
  • Visited a pumpkin patch and petting zoo

New this week:

  • Make pumpkin baby food
  • Play the “pumpkin guts sensory game” aka let her have fun with the “insides”

Last week I actually bought a small pie pumpkin. First Zoe was playing with the full pumpkin for a little bit and once I cut it open, I let her play with the “inside”. She was a little hesitant and her face was so funny! Not sure what she was thinking. After she was done, I carved it out and made her baby food.

So far I have made all her baby food myself. It’s much easier than I thought! This one was easy as well, but I have to say, I am not a big pumpkin fan. I also added some pumpkin spice (hope that’s ok for a baby) but it still is not my favorite. Let’s just hope she likes it better!


  • Nature Walk and Sensory Exploration:

Fall is a great time of the year to walk around a park or local trail to look at all the colors and play with leaves. Zoe always loved to be outside and now even more since she can crush the leaves! She could do that for hours!! Here is my favorite leave crusher hard at work
