When we arrived at the farm, we were split into two groups ~ half days and full days. We were then taken to separate rooms in the barn.
Each group made a scarecrow.
|The full day children making the head.|
|The full day children with their scarecrow, minus the pumpkin head.|
|The half day children stuffing their scarecrow.|
|The finished half day scarecrow.|
|The finished full day scarecrow.|
We also learned a lot about pumpkins.
|Our leaders weighed small, medium and large pumpkins while the children guessed their weight.|
Yes they can!
We were taken on a ride to the pumpkin patch.

Our trip to the pumpkin patch was thoroughly enjoyable and we were happy to have such a warm and sunny day. All of us ~ children, parents and teachers ~ learned something new about pumpkins from our fantastic instructors. We were also so happy to spend such a wonderful morning together.
