Pumpkin Patch Fun

We loooooove going to the pumpkin patch!  I wish it was open more than just one month because we'd be there so much more!  I just want to share a little bit about what we do at our pumpkin patch and I'd love to hear about your favorite patch and your favorite activities there in the comments!

The animals:  These are the best part!  Pigs, ducks, chickens, rabbits, baby goats, a couple of donkeys...it's pretty amazing!  And most of them, you can feed or pet.  The kids love it!


E checking out the peacock.  


A fun little car (or truck or bus??): What kid doesn't love to "drive"?  

The Corn Bin:  This is really neat.  It's basically a silo with corn covering the bottom.  Sand toys are available...it's just a blast!



Corn Maze:  This little corn maze is always a big hit!  It's not really a maze...there is no way to get lost, but it goes back and forth, around and around, and comes out another place.  I love that I can send the girls in and not lose them and they love running through!





Photo Opps:  There are several places that are perfect for snapping pictures.  I love these!!




The Pirate Ship: Climb inside, climb on top, look out the windows, go down the slide...tons of fun!





Slides!:  There are multiple slides throughout the farm.  This is the one that comes out of the barn.  There are also two loooooong tube slides and lots of playground slides!


Swings:  The kids love these.  There is a tractor and two horses made out of old tires.  So fun!




Train:  There's a little wooden train they love to climb in and play in and also a real train to ride!



This is on the real train.  E loves trains!  :)
Trikes: The kids aren't quite big enough to ride them yet, but they're getting there!  By next year, they'll love them!

Tunnels:  These tunnels are so much fun for the kids to run through and they make such fun pictures!






The Playhouse: Just a cute little house with a loft!


The Fort: This is so much fun!  Stairs galore around in a rectangle.  Up and down and across and back up and back down over and over and over.  A two/three year old's dream!  (And a mama's...they get SO worn out!!)

The Tractor Ride:  The tractor ride is always a big hit.  We don't do it every time because it's pretty dusty, so it's a special treat when we do!







The pumpkin patch is a great place for "city kids" to go to experience farm life and see where some of our food comes from, pet some animals, see a tractor up close, and run the wiggles out!  It makes for a great morning trip and is always followed by great naps!


Enjoy this post?  Keep in touch for more!

How fun! I love the ideas of the corn silo to play in and the height chart to track their height year after year. I am sure the cousins have a great time with each other there. Thanks for sharing!

It is a great place for the cousins to run around and play and the sisters to chat! :)
