Keep your toddler busy during the long, slow autumn days with our free printable pumpkin colouring pages.
Spend more time completing the jobs on your never-ending to-do list. And less time clearing up messy activities this Halloween.
Summer is well and truly behind us here in the UK.
I hate the grey, gloomy days that Autumn brings. But I love Halloween.
Carving pumpkins is one of my favourite things to do at this time of the year. However, it’s not something my toddler can really help me with.
I’m sure he’d have fun touching the insides and picking out the seeds. But that’s about as much as he can do.
So I created a colour and print pumpkin template for him instead. The perfectionist in me didn’t stop there though. I also created pumpkin colouring pictures with faces and mini pumpkin colouring sheets too! So far we’ve used them to make simple pumpkin art (which is an activity on our fun fall bucket list) and we’ve used them for colouring in.
They’re just so cute. I thought I’d share them with you.
Here they are!
Pumpkin Template Free Printable
Toddlers struggle to colour in the lines because they use big movements.
As their fine motor skills develop, they start using their fingers and wrist to move the crayon – Scholastic
It’s very unlikely that your toddler will even try to keep in the lines. So this large, simple design pumpkin colouring page gives them lots of space to colour freely.
Try keeping older kids busy for longer by getting them to add a face to their pumpkin afterwards!
Pumpkin Colouring Pages For Older Toddlers
Give older toddlers and preschoolers more of a challenge and print these Halloween pumpkin pictures with faces on. You may even want to use the faces as a stencil when carving your pumpkin this year.
Mini Pumpkin Colouring Page
This mini pumpkin colouring sheet can be coloured and added to all sorts of sensory bins. Check out my Pinterest boards for ideas. They have numbers 1 to 5 which will help them recognise their numbers and give them a head start for school. We love any sort of music in our house. So I colour these in myself (it’s quite relaxing) and put them on lollipop sticks. Then we use them as puppets alongside the song 5 Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate.
