Pumpkin Sensory Play for the book Five Little Pumpkins

For this week’s sensory activity we are going to get a little messy.

This 2-ingredient pumpkin fluff is easy to make and the kids will love the sensory exploration with it. Want to add in numbers and letters then use it as a writing tray and trace the numbers into the fluff.

Alphabet Activity for Pumpkin Week

Get moving and help with letter recognition with this really simple ABC Pumpkin Hop.

If you don’t have the plates used then cut out the same shape from an orange card for easy pumpkins.

Math Activity for the Theme of Pumpkins

Our math activity is a game this week.

We are making our own pumpkins with a race to see who can make it first. It’s great for turn-taking, learning to lose as well as working on number recognition and recognizing numbers in a pattern like the numbers 1 – 6 on a dice.

Pumpkin Themed Song and Puppets

We are switching out our cooking and science this week for a song and easy DIY puppets.

These 5 little pumpkin finger puppets are ideal to make and then use with your preschoolers as you read and sing the 5 Little Pumpkin Rhyme.

Pumpkin Craft Activity for the Five Little Pumpkins

This week we are making a simple craft that you can then use for a fall decoration or add a little extra to make it ideal for Halloween.

We’re making Paper Bag Pumpkins. If you want to adapt it for Halloween then add some features – maybe you could make a Pumpkin family with different sized bags and add facial features for Jack-o-lanterns.
