FIELD TRIP TO THE PATCH

The field trip will include five rotations which include a hayride, bounce houses and slide, story time that includes the life cycle of a pumpkin, pick-your-perfect-pumpkin time, and lunch.  We have 2 lunch options: Bring your own bagged lunch or purchase a meal. Each part of the tour will take around 20 minutes. It is recommended to prepare to be at the Pumpkin Patch 2 ½ - 3 hours.  Large groups will be split into multiple groups. It is best to have several teachers and/or chaperones to make the groups more manageable.

Welcome

We will meet you as you approach the entrance, show you where to check-in, and begin going over the rules of the Pumpkin Patch.

Rotation 1: Story Time

We will tell a fun story of how a pumpkin grows from a small seed planted by a farmer and slowly grows into a pumpkin and ends with the carving process. This rotation includes an interactive station where children can see and feel as well as learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin.

 

Rotation 2: Hayride/Train Ride

We will load everyone up on the hayride and train ride for a ride around the property.

 

Rotation 3: Bounce Houses and Slide

Bounce off some energy!  We have several options that the children will enjoy.

 

Rotation 4: Paint your pumpkin

Each child will pick out a mini pumpkin to paint and then to take home. Teachers and chaperones: A wide variety of pumpkins will be available to purchase. Pumpkins are priced based on weight.

Rotation 5: Lunch

We have a lunch option available as an add-on to your field trip or you are welcome to picnic at our tables if you prefer to bring bagged lunches.  If you have extra time and would like to take your group to our playground before heading back to the school, you are welcome to do that.
