Check out this awesome free printable pumpkin template for your little kids! You’ll find a few quick & easy Halloween craft ideas too! You’re definitely going to want to check it out!
Teaching preschool means being resourceful and this Free Printable Pumpkin Template was the result of exactly that. I had an invitation to create activity planned and I couldn’t find any pumpkin templates that were just right for what I had in mind.
Side note: Being creative when you’re a teacher is all kinds of awesome. Staying up until 2-3 AM to be creative… Not so much, but that’s a story for another day. Lol…
Seriously, though. You don’t need lots of complicated projects to keep preschoolers busy. Quick & easy works just as well! We had a blast with this pumpkin template and I’m sure that you and your little kids will too!

We actually ended up doing quite a few different things with these fun pumpkin templates.
There are lots of fun pumpkin crafts and activities that you can enjoy with your preschoolers and kindergartners this year.
This free printable pumpkin template has so many uses. From coloring to painting and even collage, you’ll definitely want to try them all!
Pumpkin Coloring Pages
Of course, we printed a few and used them as coloring pages. They’re great for toddlers and preschoolers because of the simple design that’s relatively easy to color.
Torn Paper Pumpkin Collage
Create torn paper collages with them. Basically we ripped up orange paper and glued it onto the templates to create a collage. Talk about a great fine motor activity!
Little kids will adore this quick & easy art project and the final result will make wonderful decor for your classroom or homeschool this holiday season.
Mess-Free Pumpkin Painting
We also put a pumpkin template and a little bit of orange paint in a clear zipper bag and let baby girl create her very own mess-free pumpkin art sensory activity.
Pumpkin Mixed Media Art
Use this template to lightly draw a pumpkin design on watercolor paper and then trace the lines with either glue or oil pastel then use watercolors to create gorgeous pumpkin mixed media art.
Your kiddos will definitely have a blast doing “grown-up art” and using mom’s art supplies. The little guy and I did something similar and he loved it!
Pumpkin Greeting Cards
Decorate and then cut out your pumpkin template and use it as an embellishment to create fun Halloween greeting cards for friends and family. What a simple and thoughtful creative project for little kids!
Pumpkin Cutting Practice
Use this free printable pumpkin template as a fun way for your preschoolers and kindergartners to practice important fine motor skills by having them cut out their pumpkins before decorating them.

Pumpkin Math & Literacy Ideas
Are you looking for quick & easy ideas for practicing important math and literacy skills with your little learners? Here are a few activities to get you started.
Pumpkin Letter Scavenger Hunt
Print and cut out lots of pumpkins. You’ll want to make a pumpkin for every letter of the alphabet. Write a letter on each one and then hide them. Have your kiddos find each letter of the alphabet and put them in order.
Pumpkin Patch Counting
We put together a quick & easy pumpkin patch counting activity using a sensory bin, straw, and of course pumpkins too. We chose to use 10 mini pumpkins with our preschool class, but you could of course add more for older kiddos.
