Roasted pumpkin seeds weren't too big of a hit at our house so we decided to craft with our seeds instead.
We divided our seeds in to four zip-loc bags and then each of the kids used liquid water color to dye a bag their favorite color.

After the seeds had dried the kids glued them to foam board - we have lots of this laying around but I'm sure study paper would work just fine.
The kids all did one picture where they placed the seeds at random anywhere they wanted. Then I encouraged them to fill in the first letter of their names.
As you can see from the picture above Little Lady didn't quite get concept of placing the seeds inside her 'K'. She did however amaze me with how she handled the glue. I started by showing her how to squeeze out a small amount of glue out and put a seed on top. She kept at it, quietly whispering "dot, seed, dot, seed" as she worked.
I know most people love roasted pumpkins seeds but if next year you are looking for a little something different to do with your seeds, this was a fun alternative.
