Materials Needed for Pumpkin Pudding Snacks
These fun kids snacks for your Fall party are simple to make. Here are a few items you’ll need to let the fun begin!

How to Make Pumpkin Patch Pudding Cups
- Prepare the Pudding Cups: Begin by filling each clear plastic cup or glass jar with chocolate pudding. You can either use pre-made chocolate pudding cups or make your own chocolate pudding from scratch. If you choose to make it yourself, involve your little ones in the process. It’s a fantastic opportunity to teach them some basic cooking skills!
- Create the Pumpkin Patch: Take the Oreo cookies or chocolate cookies and crumble them to create the “dirt” for the pumpkin patch. Sprinkle the cookie crumbs on top of the chocolate pudding, making sure to leave some space for the pumpkins.
- Plant the Pumpkins: Time to plant some candy pumpkins or gummy worms in the “dirt.” Let your kids be part of this planting process. They’ll enjoy seeing their pumpkin patch come to life as they strategically place the candies on top of the cookie crumbs.
- Add Some Worms: To complete the pumpkin patch look, add colorful gummy worms to the dirt.
- Optional Whipped Cream Fun: For an extra special touch, you can add a dollop of whipped cream on top of the pudding to create a “cloud” or “frosting” effect.
- Enjoy and Learn: Now that the pumpkin patch pudding cups are complete, it’s time to enjoy the delicious treat! Encourage your little ones to talk about their pumpkin patch creations, naming the different parts and sharing their imaginative stories.
