Do you want to participate in a fun family activity this fall? One tradition that many people follow is visiting a pumpkin patch to select a couple of pumpkins that will be painted or carved into jack-o-lanterns. Locate a patch now and find out what activities are offered so that your family can enjoy an action-packed day.
Find Out If A Hayride And A Wagon Are Provided
Some vendors offer a hayride to and from a pumpkin patch or a wagon that can be used to haul your selections. Find out if these services are offered at the venue that you plan on visiting. Imagine your children's smiling faces as they sit on top of hay bales while they are transported to the patch. You and your spouse can revel in the calm atmosphere that is filled with the scent of crisp autumn air.
After the ride is over, walk through the patch and select pumpkins that can be used for decorative purposes. You and your loved ones can each select a pumpkin that can be decorated individually, or you can make it a family decision and pick out one or two robust pumpkins together that can be used to adorn the sides of your home's porch or walkway.
While you are at it, think about other ways that you can use pumpkins throughout the fall. Do you and the others enjoy pumpkin pie or baked pumpkin seeds? If so, choose a couple more pumpkins for these purposes.
Explore The Rest Of The Sales Area
Picking pumpkins is an activity that is enjoyed by people of all ages. For this reason, you and your family should plan on walking around the sales area to see what else is offered. Hot cider, apples, fresh-baked goods, and canned preserves may be sold on the premises. There may be some competitions for you and the others to participate in or a play area that includes chairs so that you and your spouse can relax while you are watching your kids have fun.
Purchase Some Decorating And Baking Materials
On your way home, discuss the ways in which you and the others will decorate or use the pumpkins. Purchase painting and carving kits or ingredients needed to bake some pumpkin pies or seeds. Set aside an entire evening to decorate the pumpkins and make baked goods. Let the others help decide where the pumpkins will be displayed and offer them the treats that you have baked.
