Last month we studied pumpkins with our co-op. Ms. Amanda planned lots of fun activities.
She had the kids make paper pumpkins. They started by marble painting the paper for their pumpkins. After they dried, we cut them into strips, attached brads on one end, and pipe cleaners on the other end for a stem and leaf.
Pumpkin Life Cycle
My favorite activity was a life cycle pumpkin the kids made. Amanda printed off the life cycle of a pumpkins (there were 6 circles with the different stages).
The kids each got to cut yarn the length they thought they needed to wrap around a small pumpkin and a large pumpkin. It was a great estimating game for the kids.
The preschoolers read a pumpkin book. The got to wash their own little pumpkins in water. They then made pumpkin prints. And decorated their pumpkins with foam stickers. I’m thinking that I might be missing a few activities, but it was several weeks ago that we actually had this co-op and I haven’t had time to write the post, I’m going off my memory (not my best asset) and the pictures I took.
