Thursday Games: Pumpkin Patch Game

Each Thursday we'll bring you a fun game to play with your kids!

This week's game is...

Pumpkin Patch Game

various sizes of pumpkins

Start the game with 3-5 pumpkins of various sizes or textures. Give 5 coins(pennies) to 5 different students. Chant the following- "5 orange pumpkins in a pumpkin patch You know, the kind that are big, and round, and fat Along came (child's name) with a penny to pay He bought his pumpkin and took it away." The child then steps forward, pays the penny, and chooses a pumpkin. For language development, have the child ask, "I want the big/small/medium/bumpy/smooth/etc pumpkin, please." This is a great game for teaching manners, language development, money awareness, descriptive words-- lots of stuff. The students join in the fun, and hardly know they are learning from this simple game!
