Fall is my favorite! I just love the cooler weather, the leaves changing colors, and all things PUMPKIN!! You feel me on that? 😉 I’m excited to share some really fun (and easy!) pumpkin activities you can do with your toddler!



Jack-o-Lantern Craft

Cut an assortment of different colored shapes for your kiddo to glue onto an orange oval (pumpkin) to make a jack-o-lantern! As a follow-up, ask your child what shapes they used and how many.

Letter P 

Learn about the letter P! Color in this cute printable and even glue on some pumpkin seeds!

Counting Clip Cards

Build fine motor skills and practice counting with this fun activity! To play, count the pumpkin seeds on each card and then clip the correct answer!

Pumpkin Life Cycle

Read It’s Pumpkin Time by Zoe Hall and then use these sequencing cards to discuss the life cycle of a pumpkin together!

Float or Sink Experiment

Do pumpkins float or sink? How about other household objects? Conduct an experiment to find out! Fill a bin with water and test out each one. You can use these picture cards as a sorting extension activity!

I hope you found some inspiration and that you and your child have fun celebrating Halloween – and pumpkins! – together!
