Pumpkin Crafts and Activities
I don’t even drink pumpkin spice anything. But I love fall. And just like all of our kids are different and have different abilities, so do we! Some excel at crafts, others cooking. And for others, a printable pumpkin worksheet is plenty for us to acknowledge the season and give our kids something to do. Every since Kevin has been in elementary school, I have been getting the pumpkins for his school-wide pumpkin contest. Just last week, I just saw bins of pumpkins at the produce auction where I get them. I think August is a little too soon for pumpkins, but hey, we can still start planning. It seems September and October go by just as quickly as summer.
So, here you go, here are some fun and simple ways to celebrate the beginning of fall.

And don’t forget everyone’s favorite pumpkin poem and song:
5 Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins
Sitting on a gate.
The first one said,
“Oh, my it’s getting late!”
The second one said,
“There are witches in the air!”
The third one said,
“Well, I don’t care!”
The fourth one said,
“Let’s run and run and run!”
The fifth one said,
“I’m ready for some fun!”
Ooooo went the wind
And out went the lights
And the five little pumpkins
Rolled out of sight.
