Last night we had a really bad wind and rain storm and I thought this morning would be the same. But we woke to clear skies and the sun shone for us, yay!
As the families arrived they had an opportunity to do a scavenger hunt.
Searching and tallying how many pumpkins, witches, scarecrows, jack o’lanterns and
spiders they could find. They didn’t see any scarecrows.
Shannon, the farm owner shared a variety of pumpkins; batwing, little boo,
porcelain and fairytale.
She also showed us a piece of pumpkin vine with the blossom still attached
which led us to learning where our pumpkin comes from.
|I set up a story walk for the families to read explaining how a pumpkin grows.|
The families read each picture as they walked the lane leading to the field.
We each found our pumpkin. Then we found more.
A little pumpkin like Shannon showed us and a rotting pumpkin with lots of seeds.
Love the pumpkin patch. Thanks Shannon.
