Create your very own LEGO pumpkin play small world! Pumpkins and fall are just about my favorite time of the year. Pumpkin plays everything! We have been playing, creating, and exploring pumpkins already this season with neat mini pumpkin eruptions, pumpkin tunnels, and pumpkin slime! We can’t get enough pumpkin play, and this time we added our LEGO pieces and LEGO Minifigures.


LEGO Pumpkin Play Small World Fall Activity for Kids


This LEGO pumpkin play idea is so much fun and can be extended in so many ways. We spent a whole day creating ideas, stories, and scenes. We used our engineering and building skills and engaged in tactile sensory play as well. If you want, add a little pumpkin investigation into the activity.

Lego Pumpkin Play Small World Pumpkin Seeds


  • Pumpkin (big enough to fit little hands)
  • LEGO bricks and figs

For our simple LEGO pumpkin play small world, I purchased a baking pumpkin from the supermarket. You can go larger if you want! We have a big pumpkin jack waiting outside. Instead of cutting around the stem as you would for carving a pumpkin, I took a chunk out of the side {little hands need to get in there and play}.

Clean out the pumpkin as much as you like unless you want your LEGO Minifigures to do all the work. I actually cleaned out much of the slimy stuff and rinsed the seeds off. While we went to the pumpkin patch, I let the seeds dry on a cookie sheet.


LEGO Pumpkin Play Construction Mining STEM Play


I had a little surprise set aside for our LEGO pumpkin play, a 3-1 LEGO construction vehicle. I love these $5 sets. They are so versatile. Plus, he can sit and build it completely on his own. While I cleaned and scraped the pumpkin, he built the front loader. Our pumpkin play makes a cool construction site.

LEGO World Pumpkin Play Excavation Site


Add windows to your pumpkin play! This was so easy but made a very cool addition to our LEGO small world. I traced around a window piece and cut out the pumpkin. If it’s a bit tight, carve a little more around the opening. Wiggle and press the window into place. So cool!

I can’t wait to take this pumpkin play LEGO activity outside at night and add a light to it. I picked up a package of battery-operated tea lights. I imagine it will look pretty cool. The ideas are endless. Create a whole city! This truly is simple Fall STEM and sensory play in one!
