Parts of a Pumpkin Printable for Kids
This is actually a really simple printable for a wide variety of ages. It’s as simple as cutting out and labeling all the parts of the pumpkin. I always like to add in a little bit of fun so painting mini pumpkins or even eating pumpkin muffins can be a great way to tie the whole game together as well.
I don’t like to rely on learning from worksheets, but a cut and paste craft is something that my kids really enjoy doing. And, I love to use them as extension activities after introducing a concept through play. There are other pumpkin worksheets for kids that might be more informative, but this makes a great halloween activity for kids who are on the younger side too.
As part of the science for kids that we do at home, we study the life cycles of just about anything. Understanding where things come from, and where they go next is informative, but also helps the child feel a connection and respect for the subject matter. In our pumpkin patch sensory bin post, you can download and print a life cycle of a pumpkin story wheel to go with this too! What a fun Fall activity for kids.
How to use this Parts of a Pumpkin Printable for Kids
It’s as simple as printing it out and letting the kids put together the pieces of the pumpkin. Before they can learn about the words and what they mean, they need to create their pumpkin first.
Once that is done, it’s time to cut out the words. Once they have them cut out, it’s time to take the words and match them up to the parts of the pumpkin.
And once they master that, you can take it a step further and have them work on spelling out the words, too. There’s always something more that you can do when learning and teaching your children.
Older kids can use the words as a word bank and write them in to work on spelling and handwriting too!
Don’t forget to print out your free printable here! After all, that’s the most important part of the entire process, right?
Simply cut out the pieces, put them all together and create a fun paper pumpkin that you can hang up for everyone to see.
