Preschool Traditions: Pumpkin Patch
Our preschool traditions are so important, and a visit to the Pumpkin Patch every fall is no exception! Read on to hear about the experience from one of our preschool parents, Stephanie Hui:
“It was a crisp, sunny morning on Tuesday October 24th and kids were excited. It was the first field trip – to Fox Hollow Farm – for Mrs Rebecca, Mrs Becky/Mrs Amy and Mrs Brooke’s half-day preschool classes.
Kids and parents arrived by 9:45am and were greeted by free roaming chickens walking past our legs. We enjoyed exploring the farm, which was decked out in glorious fall decor. We saw quacking ducks, mooing cows, sleeping pigs and petted cute bunnies. Some of us rode the train along the creek. The mini tractor ride was a big hit. A curious horse posed with us for a picture. We made our way through the hay maze, and played pretend in the play-farmhouses.
At 10:45am we all sat down at the picnic tables to have a snack and took a group picture. We were not ready to leave yet. We found the corn bin, which turned out to be the absolute favorite. Kids ran and dived in, trying to crawl among the corn kernels, squeaking with joy. What fun throwing corn kernels might be, but we adults had to redirect the “fun” so the kids stayed safe!
Before we left, of course, everyone picked the perfect pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. And that concluded my fall farm parent-child adventure with my daughter and fellow preschool friends.”
