Fall is coming, and we welcome leaves, apples, and pumpkins into our homes. Today I am sharing learning activities with pumpkin theme for kids age 4-10.

Pumpkins on Planet Smarty Pants

To be honest, we keep pumpkins to October in our house, but then we have a lot of fun with them. Last year this pumpkin geoboard activity was quite popular with my almost 7 year old. It’s quite a workout for little fingers to get pins into a pumpkin! But while we are waiting until October, many of After School Link Up participants were ready to share their pumpkin ideas in the first few weeks of September. Here are many different ways you can learn with pumpkins.

Pumpkin time already! Went back in the archives a bit to find my two favorite pumpkin activities.

FYI: the pumpkin geoboard activity isn't linked to, so you can go back and fix it.

Ever since the pumpkin stuff showed up at the beginning of October the kids have been asking when we can get the Halloween stuff out.

What a great round-up! I can't believe I haven't done any pumpkin-themed activities with my boys. Now that I have this incredible list, there's no excuse not to!

It's almost October...I really can't believe it, but it really is just about pumpkin time.

Fun ideas! We haven't carved our pumpkins yet either - just collecting ideas still! Got some at the pumpkin patch last weekend though! Thanks for sharing with the Love to Learn Linky. I'm featuring you this week! Best, Sue
