Take advantage of this beautiful, crisp fall season by spending a day or two (or ten!) at a pumpkin farm. Not only will you be spending quality time with your loved ones and guiding those kiddos through yet another great experience, but you are also supporting your local farmers! You’ll find delicious farm fresh veggies and fruit; even pick up some apple cider goodies! And, of course, remember to snag a pumpkin or two for more fall fun at home. Check out our fall farm adventure and then plan your next adventure as well!
- Give those kiddos some large motor skills practice while using some thinking skills! Color? weight? Feel? There is so much to talk about on the farm! You will find more than just your standard orange pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. What at great way to have some hands-on, real life learning. Get those kiddos thinking and using new adjective for all of these new colors, textures, and adventures!
- Interact with some new and freindly farm animals!
What do they eat? What do they say? What to they feel like? What colors are they? All of this conversation is so fun and a wonderful way to apply previous knowledge into their real life. Demonstrate how to be safe and kind to all of the animals, large and adorably small.
- Test new waters by trying out some new rides! The kiddos will have lots of great opportunity to burn off some energy running up and down playgrounds, walking though corn mazes, and you may even find a funhouse or two!
- Family hay rides! Let your family dig even deeper into nature adventures on a hayride as a tractor pulls a wagon through the woods, chat about everything you see! What kinds of trees do you see? Colors? Height? What animals could lives in these woods? Another wonderful opportunity to connect previous knowledge with the beautiful world around them.
- And of course, get some amazing photo opportunities! The scenery is sure to bring unexpectedly perfect pictures. Autumn props are sure to guide some adorable fun fall photos. Also, try to take advantage of photos that could turn into a family tradition to be treasures in the years to come. You can see that our daughter was not thrill about this year’s Love Log tradition, but I know she will come around soon!
Happy Exploring! XO
