My kids have been begging me for pumpkin pie since we first went to the farmers’ market during the summer. I had my first pumpkin spice coffee halfway through August. Needless to say, we love pumpkins. They remind me of crisp, cool fall mornings and cozy sweaters. This free pumpkin patch I Spy is great for keeping my preschooler busy while I start my morning off with a nice warm coffee. Plus, the scavenger hunt option is great for when we do go to the pumpkin patch to get pumpkins for our winter pies.
Materials needed for Pumpkin Patch I Spy:
Laminating Pouch (optional)
To prep: Print the I Spy picture and checklist. Laminate the picture to make it more durable if you plan to use it with more than one child.
To use: Have your child count how many of each picture that they find and write the number in the box on the checklist.
Just like the Apple Orchard I Spy, this can be print and go if you want it to be. Otherwise, you can laminate it to use with more than one student or in more than one setting, so that you don’t need to use that precious colored ink.
To help the child keep track as they count, it may be helpful to cross off each picture as it is counted.
Otherwise, young children may count the same pictures multiple times.
In addition to the I Spy pages, I also included a matching Scavenger Hunt that you can take with you when you go to an apple orchard.
To use the scavenger hunt, simply check off each item as it is found instead of counting the number of times you see it.
