Pretend Play Pumpkin Patch
Your kids can learn so many important skills through play, and the best part is that they don’t even know they’re learning, they think they’re playing and having fun! Here you can see the role playing name tags to help your little learners identify the different roles in the pumpkin patch.
I also added some pretend mums from the dollar store to this pumpkin patch theme.

Then, place a copy of the book in your pretend play center so students can reference it while playing. If you take a field trip to a pumpkin patch this is also a great book to read before you go!
