Biscuit Visits the Pumpkin Patch
I love everything about fall! I love pumpkins and leaves and cooler temperatures. I can’t wait to explore nature with my 2yo grandson in the coming weeks.
Are you planning some fun autumn themes over the next few weeks? If so, be sure to check out Biscuit Visits the Pumpkin Patch by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. The cute story and adorable illustrations are sure to capture your preschooler from cover to cover!
After reading the story to your preschoolers, try out some of the fun hands-on activities and printables I’ve shared below.
The most obvious thing to do is to plan a trip to the pumpkin patch. Let your little ones pick out a pumpkin to bring home. Let them paint it or carve it like the little girl in the story.
Teach your preschool and kindergarten kiddos about the life cycle of a pumpkin. They’ll love learning how a tiny pumpkin seed can grow into a giant pumpkin.
If you don’t want the mess of carving pumpkins, let your children play this fun Roll a Pumpkin game to decorate paper jack-o-lanterns.
Your students will enjoy these fun learning activities. In this free printable pack, you will find the following activities:
• Maze: Trace the line to help Biscuit find the perfect pumpkin.
• Trace the Lines: Kids can trace the lines from left to right. This is a great fine motor activity and perfect for prewriting practice.
• Count the Pumpkins: Identify the number at the beginning of each row and color that many pumpkins. This activity works on number identification and counting to 10.
• Decorate the pumpkin: Use art medium (crayons, paints, markers, etc.) to decorate the pumpkin.
