Pumpkin activities in preschool fit so naturally with the season. It’s hard to avoid leaves changing color, fall holidays that capitalize on pumpkins, crisp, cool air, and yummy soups, coffees, pies, and pumpkin seeds. This free pumpkin patch I Spy printable is great for pairing with fall books for preschoolers, pumpkin life cycles, and other fall themed activities. The included scavenger hunt game is a fun pumpkin activity if you do venture out to a real pumpkin patch!
Preschool Pumpkin Activities
FREE I SPY PRINTABLES FOR PRESCHOOL
Preschool fall activities can range from hands-on pumpkin exploration to sharing pumpkin books with your preschoolers. The fall season is ripe with opportunities to enhance child development with all of the season’s sights, sounds, smells, textures and traditions.
To prep the I Spy activity for preschool: Print the free printable I Spy picture and checklist. Laminate the fall theme picture to make it more durable if you plan to use it with more than one child.
To use (no reading required): Have your child count how many of each picture they find and write the number in the box on the checklist.
Just like the Apple Orchard I Spy, this easy preschool game doesn’t require any other prep. If desired, you can laminate the I Spy game for kids to use with more than one student or in more than one setting, so you don’t need to use that precious colored ink.
Cross off each pumpkin themed picture as your child finds it to help keep track as they count on the I Spy preschool page.
Otherwise, young children may count the same pictures multiple times.
In addition to the I Spy pages, I also included a matching pumpkin patch preschool Scavenger Hunt that you can take with you when you go to a pumpkin patch. And don’t forget your pumpkin preschool books when you go!
To use the preschool pumpkin theme scavenger hunt, simply check off each item as it is found instead of counting the number of times you see it.
