October is here and it’s all about the pumpkins. Don’t miss this FREE pumpkin life cycle printable activity pack perfect for the classroom or at home.
A trip to the pumpkin patch is one of our family’s favorite fall traditions. We love visiting one of our areas farms and enjoying a hay ride and a walk around the patch, finished off with Apple Cider!
This year our trip to the patch won’t just be a fun family outing, it will be a Homeschool field trip! We get to avoid the crowds and visit the pumpkin patch during the weekday and use the opportunity to incorporate some learning into our trip as well.
Centering our pumpkin patch trip around our Homeschool lessons means learning all about the Life Cycle of a pumpkin and parts of a pumpkin!

We will be using our Pumpkin Life Cycle printable activity pack to explore the pumpkin life cycle and the parts of a pumpkin here at home before we head to the pumpkin patch to learn all about our pumpkins up close.
Pumpkin Carving and Decorating
Once you choose your pumpkins you can take the time to carve them to explore all of the different parts of the pumpkins.
We always like to get a few additional pumpkins also to decorate without carving so they will last longer and we can use them past Halloween.
Pumpkin Life Cycle Books
Kids always learn more when they are involved in an activity versus just memorizing so we like to use fun printable activity packs to catch their attention and follow the lessons up with hands on learning like one of these fun pumpkin life cycle activities.
