Pumpkin Preschool Activities

Can you believe fall is just around the corner? I’m already thinking of pumpkin preschool activities that I want to do with the kids. I know that messy projects are always the most fun. It’s a great way to bring those fall colors into your projects but I always hate thinking about fall because it means summer is over.

Fun Pumpkin Activities

If you’re looking for some fun pumpkin activities to do with preschoolers, you’re in luck! Pumpkins provide endless opportunities for engaging and hands-on learning experiences. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Pumpkin Exploration: Set up a sensory station with different-sized pumpkins for children to touch, smell, and even taste (if age-appropriate). Encourage them to describe the textures and colors they observe.

Pumpkin Painting: Provide washable paints and brushes, and let the little ones express their creativity by painting pumpkins. They can create spooky faces, vibrant patterns, or even turn them into animals.

Pumpkin Seed Sorting: Give each child a small bowl of pumpkin seeds and challenge them to sort the seeds by size, shape, or color. This activity promotes fine motor skills and basic math concepts.

Try this pumpkin fine motor mats for more fine motor practice.

Pumpkin Playdough: Make homemade orange playdough and add pumpkin pie spice for a delightful scent. Children can mold the playdough into pumpkins or use cookie cutters for different shapes.

You can’t go wrong with any of the pumpkin ideas for your family.
