Paper Pumpkins

In Kindergarten, we always take a trip to the pumpkin patch!  We love for the kids to see an actual field that the pumpkins are growing in. 

When we get back to school we write about our favorite part of the pumpkin patch trip.  I saw this idea on Somewhat Simple.  Instead, I typed out  the phrase “I liked the ________________.  The kids were to fill in the blank with their 3 most favorite Pumpkin Patch activities.  It is still early in Kindergarten and we have just started sounding out beginning sounds in words.  So for this activity, I wrote the words on the board that they told me they needed.

The kids did a GREAT job with these!  This activity was also great for practicing their cutting skills!


Here are two of the strips.  You will need 6 strips in all.  They had 3 “I liked” strips and 3 plain strips.


You will stack the strips all together and hole punch 1 hole in each end.  I attached brads on both ends.

After the brads are attached, pull each strip out and it will start looking like a pumpkin!
