Pumpkin Activities for Preschool and Kindergarten

My kids love a good pumpkin activity and we've done many over the last few years. So I compiled a list of super fun pumpkin activities for preschoolers!

Pumpkin activities for kids in preschool, pre-k and kindergarten.

As soon as fall arrives and pumpkins show up in stores, my kids become fascinated with all things pumpkin. Every time we are in the grocery store they ask to buy one of those small one dollar pumpkins. Plus, we often buy several of the larger ones too.

They love when we do pumpkin activities too. So I like to create or find activities that play on their love of pumpkins and also teach them a few things too.

All of these pumpkin activities are perfect for fun AND learning! Because the best kind learning happens when they are having fun!
