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.
This is bound to be a colorful adventure for your growing and learning toddler! All you need is pumpkin seeds, different colored food dyes, glue, and construction paper to make this a great rainbow and word learning project.
Every mom wishes that kids wished for easy pets. So why not give them an upgraded version of a pet rock? Or just use it as a paper weight! Grab your paint, a sharpie, and some green pipe cleaner to make this inexpensive rock paper weight.
