Dyed Pumpkin Seed Letter Tracing

We saved the seeds we removed from our pumpkin a few days ago, and allowed them to dry for a few days. I decided to dye them and use them for another activity.

It’s ridiculously easy to dye pumpkin seeds actually.

I put the dry pumpkin seeds into little bags and added 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar and enough food coloring until I liked the color. I sealed the bags and mixed until each seed was evenly coated. This also helped keep the coloring on the seeds and NOT on my hands, haha.

I spread them on paper towels to dry – they were ready to use the next morning.

I had my kiddo use the seeds to line the letters I drew on a piece of paper. You could use this for sight words, names or whatever.

How cute is this?
Great for promoting fine motor skills, hand/eye coordination and helps kiddos learn the shapes of different letters.
