I’m so ready for fall. Our weather is teasing me with cooler nights and mornings. Then, the temperatures rise again throughout the day to remind me that autumn isn’t quite here yet. But, I’m getting anxious!

Pumpkin Patch Printable
I originally released this printable two years ago. Since then, however, I’ve updated some of the graphics and added a few new activities for those of you who missed it the first time around.
Combine this fun learning pack with the fall leaves printable I shared last week, and you’ve got what you need to welcome fall to your homeschool preschool!
These activities are general pumpkin-themed preschool pages. Stay tuned for a full pumpkin-themed unit study with a science, literacy, and math focus.
