Pumpkin Life Cycle

While we were at the pumpkin patch, we were lucky enough to be able to see almost all of the pumpkin life cycle!

In order to see seeds, we cut open a pumpkin at school. These seeds are planted in the ground and grow into pumpkins!

Small green plants turn into long vines. Yellow flowers bloom where the pumpkins will grow.

The flowers close, and tiny green pumpkins begin to form.

The green pumpkins grow bigger...

...and begin to turn orange.

After a lot of sunshine, the pumpkins are completely orange and ready to be picked!

Have you visited a pumpkin patch as a family? Were you able to see any of the different stages of the pumpkin life cycle?
