Things to Do With Your Leftover
If you have a pond, fountain, creek or other
body of water nearby, hollow out your pumpkins and float them.
If you have enough room, have a pumpkin race. Experiment to find
out if jack-o-lanterns will float.
Place them in a fish tank with garden soil,
cover the tank with plastic wrap, and watch the pumpkin decompose.
Or set it out in a bed outdoors and chart changes. (Case
of the Missing Pumpkin)
Fill them halfway with garden soil, add worms and sprinkle coffee
grounds, shredded newspaper and other organic matter. Place in
the aquarium or in a bed outdoors, and watch the worms eat themselves
out of their home.
