Pumpkin & Fall Preschool Fun

I am combining these two themes into one post because sadly, she was totally UNinterested in my fall theme. It would have made a really lame post to be honest. Last year she LOVED the fall theme, see it here.

I talked her into exploring a bit, but didn’t really choose anything on her own, except for the sensory basket…

She loves sorting…

She also sang the fall leaf songs with me, she always likes songs!

She LOVED this book last year {here’s last year’s Tot School post}, in fact I created an entire Scarecrow Printable Pack because she loved it so much  This year she told me she doesn’t like scarecrows. Figures. We did read it a few times, and she enjoyed the props, but not nearly as much as last year.

This was probably her favorite printable activity.  It’s from education.com and I used wooden alphabet beads for her to find the missing letters.

Pumpkins ~ Just Color!

The idea behind Just Color! is simple ~ theme packs all focused around coloring. There are mostly coloring pages, and a few coloring activities. The coloring pages are all in one download to make it easier to download and print all at once, in case you have coloring monsters like I do!

I just added a new Pumpkin Coloring set!

Remember, if you want to make a mini coloring book, you can always scale down PDF files! If you have any problems downloading or printing these or other PDF files, see troubleshooting tips here.

Pumpkin Sensory Bin & Tot Trays

For Ladybug’s Tot School, this week, we have a pumpkin theme!  On Sunday I will share in our weekly Tot School post photos of her interacting with all of this.  This set up was created for Ladybug who is currently 3 1/2, many activities could be enjoyed by younger or older tots.  See my post about following the lead of the child here.

I set up her Tot Trays with a pumpkin theme, with her sensory play area up on top.

Pumpkin Tot School

On her trays are many printable activities that require scissors and/or glue {most are from my Pumpkin Packs}.  Also there is a pumpkin eraser roll and transfer {she rolls the dice and transfers that many to the mini ice cube tray with the tongs}, and a color cubes pumpkin activity I made for her {I added the printable to the Pumpkin Printable Pack}.  Some orange play dough and pumpkin cookie cutters finishes up her trays.Pumpkin Tot School-3453

Pumpkin Printables ~ Part 2

Pumpkin Printable Pack

Last year I made a Pumpkin Pack, mostly for Krash to use.  I will be using many of those printables this year also, with Ladybug.  She really enjoyed a few of the activities I made in her Scarecrow Pack, so I made  Pumpkin Printables ~ Part 2, to add in some of her favorites. These printables are geared towards tots and prechoolers mostly, they were made specially for Ladybug who is 3 1/2 and I know many of your kiddos may like them too! Cutting, gluing, matching, coloring, counting, tracing, graphing, dot fun, and more!

Here is the Pumpkin Printable Pack I made last year…www.1plus1plus1equals1.net
