Pumpkin Patch Frield Trip

Last Friday Abby had her first field trip with school to the pumpkin patch followed by a picnic lunch at the park. It was a lot of fun, the kids had a blast and Andrew was even able to sneak away from work for a bit to meet us! When we first got there we had about 15 minutes or so for the kids to run around and to get some pictures. After that, we broke into groups based on which class they are in and had a few activities planned. Abby's class, along with her teacher Miss Marlo started with the "pumpkin hugging" activity where they cut off out a piece of string to hug and measure different size pumpkins. After that, we headed over to story time to listen to a pumpkin story and explore the insides of a pumpkin. Last, we went over to the craft table where the kids were given a snack and made the cutest little pumpkin crafts out of toilet paper, cloth, and a brown paper bag. When all the activities were finished the kids were allowed to pick out one mini pumpkin to take home and then we headed over to the park for some lunch and running around! We couldn't have asked for a better day!

Abby had been looking forward to going to the pumpkin patch ever since the signs went up in late September!


This is the pumpkin hugging activity.

Here is Abby's class listening to the story. It was funny, the girls sat and listened to most, if not all of the story but most of the boys lost interest and were running around after a matter of minutes!

This isn't the greatest picture but it gives you and idea of the pumpkins we made.
