I love buying the mini pumpkins because they’re just so cute. But I sometimes feel like the purchase is a waste because they just sit there in a cute display for a little while until I have to throw them out.
So I came up with some activities my daughter could do with the pumpkins so they would serve an added purpose.
Here are the pumpkin activities we’ve tried out so far.
First, wash them.
Next, set them out to dry.
Count them (on a number line).
Sort them (by color, size, or any other noticeable attribute)
Put them in order. (We did biggest to smallest.)
Make patterns. (I made one, and Pooky copied it.)
Balance them (on cardboard rolls).
Play “pumpkin toss” (on a soft surface).
Make your own glitter pumpkins.
And, of course, create a lovely display with them.
Did I miss anything? What do you do with those adorable mini pumpkins?
