Angie, my brain isn't working to well this late at night. My first thought is that kids don't like pumpkin stuff that much. One of my grandchildren loves a pumpkin roll with the cream cheese inside. That's a lot of effort early in the a.m. to do, though. If it were me and this late putting something together, I would go with making mini pumpkin muffins and add white icing (or color it orange) or take a can of Redi-Whip and put a dollop on top at the school. That way if the child didn't like it, they would only waste a small amount. Just my late-night idea! Hope you're not stressing over this sudden request from your children.
