If you haven’t yet watched the movie, we definitely recommend it for families with young children. Although the movie is a little cheesy for adults, it has songs, characters, and lessons parents will love!

The movie revolves around Spookley the square pumpkin, who despite his best efforts, just can’t seem to fit in with all the other pumpkins around him.

He tries desperately to fit in, but the round pumpkins just continue to tease him. Spookley finds friends in an unlikely group that includes spiders, bats, and a scarecrow.



Start by downloading the Spookley template and printing it out. Once you have the template printed, gather the materials needed for this fun activity. Get those scissors ready, and let’s help the kids bring this pumpkin to life!
