Pumpkin Poems and Muffins

Pumpkins are one of the symbols of Halloween and we thought we’d have a bit of fun with them.    We made pumpkin muffins and most of us thought they were delicious.  You can see some photos below.  Unfortunately, Mrs W accidentally deleted the video footage she took!

Click here for the recipe if you’d like to try them at home:

Pumpkin muffins


We wondered just what a pumpkin might dream of and wrote poems about this.  Please enjoy some of our efforts.
