On Oct 26th, Preschool, Pre-K, and Kindergarten students visited The Plumper Pumpkin Patch and Tree Farm. This annual trip has been an NWCA fall tradition for many years.
At the pumpkin patch, helpful staff members introduced to us several different kinds of pumpkins and offered a variety of fun, hands-on activities for students.We went on a scenic hayride through the farm’s Christmas tree grove and around the upper field.
We also visited the animals: JP, the billy goat; sheep and lambs; bunnies; chickens and chicks; and Coco and Nilla, the alpacas. After visiting the animals, we got to try out the farm’s other activities. So, we worked our way through the maze, slid down the giant slide, and challenged our abilities on the obstacle course.
Of course, the highlight of the whole trip for students, teachers, and families alike was hunting in the pumpkin patch for the perfect pumpkin to take home.
All in all, it was a very successful, fun field trip!
