stART- Too Many Pumpkins

Too Many Pumpkins
After our trip to the pumpkin patch yesterday we curled up with this pumpkin tale.  In the story Rebecca Estelle hates pumpkins so when the pumpkin truck drops an enormous pumpkin in her yard she chooses to ignore it.  The next spring she discovers a big surprise- a yard full of pumpkins!  What ever will she do with so many pumpkins?  We loved reading to find out.  With pumpkin patches on our mind we set out to make one of our own.  On a sheet of white paper, Eva used her orange and green paint dabbers to make the pumpkins.
Then she added stems
and some vines.
Now she has a yard full of pumpkins just like Rebecca Estelle.


  1. I've never seen this pumpkin book--thank you!

    We did an activity like this last year, but used thumbprints instead of dot markers and read The Bumpy Little Pumpkin.

    BTW, I am a regular stalker of your blog and love getting so many book titles and crafts to go along with them each week for my middle son! Thank you so much:-)!

  2. Great craft. Eva did a great job making her pumpkin patch!

  3. What a wonderful project, Emily would love this and it is perfect since we just went to the pumpkin farm too.
