The smell of pumpkin spice is in the air! Get into the fall/autumn spirit with your preschooler or kindergartener using this fun pumpkin-themed pre-writing activity packet.
Pumpkin themes are really popular in the preschool setting. I wanted to create an age-appropriate way for my 4-year-old to practice some of his pre-writing lines with a fun fall twist.
I love combining as many different pre-writing skills as I can. There is much more to pre-writing skills that just practicing letters with a pencil. In fact, I suggest staying away from a pencil as much as you can and focus on more hands-on ways to use these activity pages.
Hands-On Ways to Use This Pumpkin-Themed Pre-Writing Activity Packet
I encourage you to think outside the typical pencil and paper activities, especially for your younger preschoolers. Here are some fun hands-on ways you can use these activity sheets.
- Use playdough to form each line.
- Peel stickers and use them to fill in each line.
- Use fine motor tongs to pick up beads to place on the lines.
- Use Wikki Stix to form each line.
