Pumpkin Pie in a Bag

The week of Thanksgiving is alwasy one of the longest weeks ... even though it's only 2 days long! We spend a lot of time finishing work, playing in centers, playing games and doing little Thanksgiving crafts. The day before Thanksgiving break, about half of our grade level has a Thanksgiving dinner in their classroom. Since I know it's that time of year when money gets tight, we skip the classroom dinner. This year, however, I decided to make pumpkin pie in a bag after seeing it on a couple different blogs. It went over so well with the kiddos!

15 oz can Pumpkin 
2 small boxes of vanilla pudding
2½ cups milk
Cinnamon to taste
Graham Crackers

Gallon Size Baggie
Snack Size Baggies (one for each child, optional)

The kids came around one at a time and helped me spoon the pumpkin into our gallon bag. 

I added the pudding mix, cinnamon and milk. 

Then, we passed the bag around the table to everyone could take turns mixing it up.

 Once our pumpkin mixture was thick, I cut off one of the corners at the bottom of the bag, and my little helper that likes to sit next to me held open snack sized baggies while I squeezed our pumpkin mixture into them for each kid to have.

Once everyone got their bag, they cut a corner off of their bag themselves and squeezed their pumpkin onto a graham cracker (thank goodness we have an abundance of graham crackers on our share table that can't leave the classroom!)

They LOVED it! I don't like pumpkin, so I didn't partake in our little Thanksgiving snack, but the kids liked it so much they took their leftovers home!
