Pumpkin Patch Pudding Cups 🎃
What You Need
- Clear plastic cups
- Chocolate pudding
- Chocolate cream cookies
- Green sugar sprinkles
- Mellowcreme pumpkins
- Green gel (optional)
- Fall leaf sprinkles (optional)
- Paper craft straw
- Craft sticks (5 each)
- Hot glue
- Paint pen for sign
1. To begin the pumpkin patch pudding cups, prepare soft-serve chocolate pudding (I just used instant pudding) and fill the cups about about 3/4 full.
2. Crush up some chocolate cream cookies using your fist, a spoon, or a food processor. This is a fun activity to get kids involved in, especially if you use a hammer.
3. Sprinkle a decent amount of cookie crumbs onto the top of the pumpkin patch pudding. This will be the “dirt.”
4. Most pumpkin patches have a little bit of grass still with the pumpkins, not just dirt, so add some of the green sprinkles around the top of your pumpkin patch pudding cup. I did some spots with none, some with very little, and others with a decent amount so it looks more like grass would.
5. Place a few mellowcreme pumpkins on the top of your pumpkin patch pudding and push them down gently into the “dirt” like they are sitting in a pumpkin patch. If you can find different sized/shaped pumpkins, that would be even better! I just went with whatever was in the Autumn mellowcreme mix and candy corn package that I purchased. You can also add some green gel for vines and sprinkle on some leaf-shaped sprinkles if you wish!
6. While the pudding sets, make the pumpkin patch signs! Start by gluing the craft sticks onto the paper straw. Make sure these are centered and that they each touch. Leave a small amount of the straw poking out from the top and a good amount below as it will be sticking into the pudding.

Fall Poems and Stories🍂
All About Fall and Winter By: Sophia
2020 Halloween By: Carson H.
Thanksgiving Poem By: Adriana
I’m a turkey, I’m a turkey,
I’m a turkey big and strong.
But eating me for thanksgiving
is simply, simply wrong.
Eat some chicken, eat some veggies,
Eat a slice of pumpkin pie.
Is it really any wonder if I prefer
the Fourth of July?
The turkey is a funny bird,
It’s head goes bobble, bobble.
And all I know is just one word that is,
Fall By: Brendan G., James P., and Daniel R.
Fall colors are so pretty. They are colorful like red, orange, yellow, and green. Our favorite colors are red, orange and yellow.
Some leaves have three sides and others have seven. Some types of leaves are maple, walnut, and oak.
What To Do
Some things to do in the Fall are to make leaves and jump in them, pick apples and pumpkins, and carve pumpkins.
Some animals you will see in the Fall are foxes, turkeys, groundhogs, squirrels, snakes, hares, and toads.
Fall is a wonderful time of the year.
Falling into fall poem By: Lia S.
Orange, red, yellow, and green.
All these colors make me beam.
Leaves are whooshing down onto the ground.
Birds make their nest and get ready for snow.
When will it come? You never know.
Chipmunks and squirrels get all snug. So do I.
Wait, where is my hot chocolate mug?
The breeze gets colder as the world moves on.
But don’t worry, you’ll still be my top number 1.
So before you leave, just a quick little saying and don’t forget, leaves may be falling looking a little drowsy, but just to know they can always be dancing or playing.
Pardoning of The Turkey By Nolan F.
Were you aware that each year the President pardons a turkey?
Nobody knows who started this turkey pardon and nobody knows who will end it. People think Abraham Lincoln started it, while others think George W. Bush.
To pardon means an act by an official person releasing someone from punishment. It's been a tradition that almost every President has done.
Though the turkey is not guilty, they pardon it so that it is one less turkey that someone eats on Thanksgiving. This ceremony goes back to the 1940’s and the President’s family often participates in this ceremony. These turkeys that get pardoned have funny names. The most recent ones were Chuckles and Butter. Each of these ceremonies are recorded, put on websites, and on the news.
I wonder who the turkey will be this year!
