We have been taking fall and trying to use it to the fullest for learning, crafting and fun around here. I decided to take some extra pumpkin seeds and a few pumpkins and turn it into a couple of activities to keep the girls busy recently. In the process I also got to draw silly pumpkins with my favorite writing utensil. A sharpie. It’s the little things that keep me happy.
Pumpkin Seed Counting Supplies:
- Pumpkin Seeds leftover from pumpkin carving, pie making or snacking.
To start off our activity we took a detour and first counted tiny pumpkins and read the book Five Silly Pumpkins. The girls took turns counting the pumpkin, rearranging the pumpkins and sorting the pumpkins. Doing this was a quick way to fill up more time with our activity and expand on the pumpkin theme and counting.
Step one: Draw pumpkins on a sheet of paper and number them.The number of pumpkins you do is up to you. We did six because I felt six pumpkins worked for out size paper.
Step Two: Count and color the pumpkins in.
Step three: Count out pumpkin seeds for each pumpkin. The first pumpkin gets one seed, the second gets two, the third gets three, and so on.
