Free Pumpkin Printables for Preschoolers
A pumpkin preschool theme is another one of those iconic fall themes for preschool.
Grocery stores already have them set out for purchasing.
Giant, round, thick-skinned pumpkins ready to be taken home for carving.
Bumpy, warty-looking pumpkins that are closer to gourds than the globe-like orange squash.
And now even short and squatty white and blue pumpkins.
If you have walked past the front entrance of a heavily decorated grocery store, strolled through a fall farmers market, or taken a hayride at a local pumpkin patch, you know they now come in all shapes and sizes.
And you also know that their wide variety in appearance is very appealing to preschoolers.
Pumpkins provide a fun, tangible experience for most preschoolers. Like an apple preschool theme, they’re so familiar to preschoolers that they come to preschool with valuable background knowledge.
