Pumpkins Activities for Preschoolers

Pumpkins Activities for Preschoolers

In continuation of our fall celebration, we focused on pumpkins and all the learning  and exploration that happens through pumpkins. We hammered golf tees into them, emptied their insides, counted pumpkin seeds, laced felt pumpkins, made play dough from canned pumpkin, and of course, learned that pumpkin begins with P.

Pumpkin play dough. Canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices created a wonderfully smelling dough.

Sorting pumpkins and leaves at the light table.

Number recognition and counting pumpkin seeds.

“It feels so slimy!”

P is for pumpkins at the light table using translucent pumpkins. I like to teach the letters and letter sounds as we cover our themes. We then review them all at our circle time.

I have been teaching for twenty years, ten of those in Pre-K. Currently I have started a free preschool for students from families set in a community center. This is the second free preschool I have started. The first was set in a library and is award winning and has been nationally recognized. I delight in educating children and preparing a trusting, warm, and safe environment for them. It is a honor to be teaching our youngest scholars and setting them on their academic path.
