Picky Preschoolers

October 21, 2011
The Maui News
Picking the perfect pumpkin is serious business to Kamehameha Schools preschoolers (from left) Jacob Arruiza, Makahinu Au and Lilyanna Medeiros, all 3, Thursday morning as they watch University of Hawaii Maui College Agriculture Department nursery helper Rose Marie Feliciano harvest their classroom’s holiday squash. The department’s staff is entertaining small groups of preschoolers this week while gearing up for this weekend’s annual community pumpkin sale. The event will be from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday behind the greenhouse. Pumpkins will be on sale for $1 to $8, with proceeds benefiting the UH-MC Agriculture Department. Also at the event, the Native American Student Association will offer face painting and sell “Indian tacos”; the Kabatak Club will sell chocolate and have keiki crafts; the Dental Program will hand out free toothbrushes, and sell shave ice and boiled peanuts; and agriculture students will have a pumpkin-carving demonstration, provide music and set up a display on beekeeping.
