Teach your toddlers and preschoolers about pumpkins and the life cycle of plants with these 40 fun activities for kids, including fine motor, crafts, STEM, and more.

Here at Rolling Prairie Readers, we are passionate about helping young children learn through play!

As a former classroom teacher, I have been putting together unit studies for years! I love finding hands-on activities that families can do with minimal preparation and NO worksheets. Children learn best through discovery and play, and these pumpkin activities will help you all have fun learning together!
