Pumpkins- Day 5

Field Trip to a pumpkin patch!

Talk with your child about how the farmer plants the pumpkin, waits for the pumpkin to grow, picks the pumpkin, and then sells it. It would be great if you could actually walk through a pumpkin field or take a wagon ride through one. You can help your child purchase a pumpkin, then bring it home and turn it into a pie or a decoration.

Tip-there are websites that list local pumpkin patches. I know there are a few located in SW Ohio.
