It’s (almost) officially fall! Even though the weather doesn’t get much cooler in my part of the country for quite a while yet, I still love it when fall arrives! I love to see the colorful leaves and dream about cooler weather. I love drinking my pumpkin spice latte. I love decorating my fall tree and putting out my fall decorations. And I love sharing fun (and super cute) printables and ideas like this one! Take a look at our All About Pumpkins Life Cycle Unit Study and download it now while it’s free!
This All About Pumpkins Life Cycle Unit Study includes 16 pages of worksheets! You’ll find pumpkin life cycle worksheets and a labeling activity in which your children will learn to label the parts of the pumpkin. We’ve also included Montessori three-part cards and a nature journal (with cover and blank pages for open-ended learning). It’s perfect for students from 1st – 6th grades!
If you’d like to add some math to your study, try out this Pumpkin Ten Frame Addition printable! Have your child choose one of the formula cards, and then use the pumpkins to fill in the ten frame and solve the problem.
For some fun sensory play and basic skills practice, try this Pumpkin Spice Playdough along with our Pumpkin Playdough Play Mats. Not only does the playdough smell fabulous, but you can use it to work on forming the letter p (For pumpkin, of course!), sounding out the letter p, building circles and spheres, and basic counting skills.
For some language arts practice, how about writing a pumpkin-themed story? Use this Create-a-Face Pumpkin Printable to make fun pumpkin faces, and then use the creative writing sheet to write stories about them! You can also use this printable to talk about emotions and character qualities.
And finally, to bring some art in to your pumpkin study, try Pumpkin Pointillism: An Art Lesson in Primary Colors. This art lesson teaches your children how to make a pumpkin still life using only red, yellow, and blue paint! Not only is painting fun, but this lesson will help give your children an understanding of the primary and secondary colors by experiencing them!
For a fun pumpkin-related craft you can do with your children, take a look at this Easy Decorative Pumpkin Paper Bag Craft. This craft allows younger children to work on fine motor skills, and it allows everyone to enjoy spending time together making some cute pumpkins to use as fall decorations.
And there’s nothing more fun than adding a delicious recipe to your studies! Food makes everything more fun, right?! If you have adventurous eaters (and even if you don’t!), you’ll want to try this Creamy Pumpkin Soup recipe. We hope you love making it and eating it together!
