October is here, and we are enjoying the season change. Beautiful colors are all around; squirrels are hopping through the yard gathering acorns, the smell of apple cider fills the house, and kids are tossing leaves in the air. Don’t you just love this time of year? It seemed like the perfect time to learn about pumpkins and enjoy a few fun pumpkin activities.

Pumpkin Activities for Kids – Pumpkin Theme Lesson Plans
Does a pumpkin sink or float Science Experiment?
Pumpkin Science just wouldn’t be complete without a little investigation. So we spent time using our senses to explore our pumpkin.
Every child had their own pumpkin to learn about. We measured, we inspected, and we jotted down our findings on the pumpkin investigation sheet. (You can grab a set of free pumpkin activities printables below)
Pumpkin Investigation Worksheets
We learned about the parts of a pumpkin and the pumpkin life cycle. The children LOVE learning about life cycles.
The Pumpkin Runner is an excellent book based on a true story about a sheep rancher that loved to run with his yellow dog and got all of his energy from a pumpkin. The ending is the best so pick it up at your library or add it to your wish list it’s a great addition to your fall reading.
