This was a trip that was more than just pleasurable, it was very informative, and best of all a lot of fun. The activities were divided into groups which consisted of the hayrides, the donuts and cider, the bee presentation, and picking a pumpkin to take with you. The children were just thrilled to be able to pick their own pumpkins. As the children picked their pumpkins, their names were written on them, so upon returning to school, they would be able to identify their own pumpkins.
The hayride is a ride through the corn maze and through Scareville. The name “Scareville” is the name of the mock town in the corn maze. While riding you will see various signs along the way, which will keep you entertained and also keep your attention. It is not just an ordinary hayride.
Cider and donuts:
You do not want to miss the cider and donuts which are a highlight of this event.
Stuff the Scarecrow:
This is an another event that children can take an active part in. There will be 4 scarecrows. The children are separated into groups of 4. They then each race to stuff the shirt and pants of the scarecrow with hay. The face is a white cloth over a poster board. The children can make the face they desire on this cloth poster board with marker. This will complete their scarecrow. Each group races to see who will finish first.
Lamb and donkey:
Ever see a lamb and a donkey share a living area together? This is something you must see. A small donkey and a lamb.
Bee Hive Presentation:
The Bee Hive Presentation is quite informative. The informal speaker explains how they keep and store bees to make honey. The speaker explained how the queen bee and the worker bees function. She showed the all white clothing that she wears when she gets the honey from the honey boards.
Monday-Saturday 10 am to 6 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m -5p.m Sundays-October. The corn maze is open all week long.
