We have had so much fun over the last two weeks taking groups of Preschool children “Pumpkin Picking”. The arrangements this year were a little different than previous years as we held the event in a local field made available to us by the owners of the nursery. The children picked their pumpkins and put them in wheel barrows to take back to nursery. There were games in the field, including a hunt for autumn leaves and other autumn themed items and a pumpkin themed throwing game. The children had their picnic lunches and hot chocolate in a gazebo sitting on bales of hay. It was fabulous fun and the children continue to talk about how much they enjoyed their experience.
All children have been taking a pumpkin home to carve with a view to bringing it back for our pumpkin carving competition.
Please follow us on Facebook from Monday next week to see all the fabulous photos we have taken of the children.
