Our preschoolers are loving to count this year! They loved our apple counting activity a few weeks ago, and then our apple graph last week. So I put together simple pumpkin math for preschoolers with free printable cards. I have had this activity out all week because they are having so much fun with it!
Last week our preschool went to the farm and each child got to take home a pumpkin. They will carve it tomorrow during Dad’s Pumpkin Carving Night. They are so excited about these pumpkins and I think that’s another reason why this pumpkin math activity is such a hit.

Pumpkin Math for Preschoolers with Free Printable Cards
What we used:
- Pumpkin Counting Cards (available at the end of this post)
- Pumpkin seeds
Setting it up:
I decided to have this activity out during our centers time. I simply placed the seeds in a cup and placed the cards on a placemat.
The preschoolers identified each number and placed that amount of seeds on each card.
For those who need an extra challenge, you can shuffle the cards, place in a basket, and have them place them on the table in numerical order.
I’m thinking about making books out of these. After placing the seeds on the cards, the preschoolers could glue them onto the paper. The pages could be then stapled together in numerical order.
