Pumpkin Ideas for Kids

Ready for some pumpkin fun? Make this fall Breakfast Invitation!

Guess what? Breakfast Invitations do not have to take hours to set up.

In fact, this fun pumpkin prep took exactly 7 minutes. (Yes, I time them so I can tell you exactly what to expect.)

And you know why it took 7 minutes to set up?

Here’s the secret. - You don’t have to cut perfect pumpkins. Cut quickly. Cut two at a time. Your preschooler will still adore this Breakfast Invitation. Read how here.

Breakfast Invitation for fall

Here's WHY this game is so valuable. 

There is a difference between counting and understanding what the numbers stand for.

COUNTING is one of the first concepts to master. You will notice that your preschooler can count fairly early on and that counting has to do with memorization. 

BUT WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON IN THIS PICTURE IS QUANTITY. 

QUANTITY is the concept of understanding how many. 

It may also include concepts such as more than, bigger than, less than, and same as. 

By Kindergarten, children will be asked to understand that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one larger.

This visual allows your preschooler to touch the objects as they count and add one more.


Not only will you get a new Breakfast Invitation here, but you will also better understand how to handle when things go a new direction.

Tell me the first word that comes to mind when you think of Fall. 

Chances are it is either apple or pumpkin spiced latte. Being a tea drinker, I tend to fall (unintended pun!) into the apple category. They are crisp, delicious, and everywhere. Plus my three-year-old gobbles them up so I knew he would be instantly hooked. 

We know that balancing our bodies can help improve reading skills. So let's take a look at how balancing objects can benefit learning as well.
