With Halloween around the corner, I likely may be trying to figure out some Easy Pumpkin Crafts for Kids. I know I am! So, today I bring you a few easy pumpkin crafts for kids… many of these are super easy and can be done with toddlers or preschool age. Others require a little bit more fine motor. Either way – kids will have fun crating their easy pumpkin craft! Before we begin, though, I always like to share a few of my favorite pumpkin books!
These are some of my favorite pumpkin books for kids. Pumpkin Jack is a great story on the life cycle of a pumpkin…(but so is From Seed to pumpkin). Splat the Cat is always fun! I also love how many seeds in a pumpkin…that is great for a science experiment! I love all of the pumpkin fun!

First, here is my easy pumpkin craft for kids! It is just a simple worksheet where children can draw a pumpkin face and color the pumpkin. Another option that my children love is to just build a pumpkin with stickers.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
