  • πŸŽƒπŸŒ΄ Consider getting a wagon

    Bringing more than one little kid may be difficult to get them around. A fun idea is to get a wagon; you can pull them around, take cute pictures, and load pumpkins inside. Check out this highly-rated wagon from Woods: https://link.joinarrange.com/visitingthepumpkinpatch_wagon

  • πŸŽƒπŸŒ΄ Get pumpkin carving tools

    Carving pumpkins is another fun way to get into the Halloween spirit. We recommend waiting to carve them until Halloween is just around the corner so they don't rot before the 31st; in warmer climates a carved pumpkin will last about 3-5 days, and up to 2 weeks in colder climates.

  • πŸŽƒπŸŒ΄ Plan to leave pets at home

    At many pumpkin patches there are farm animals, which could be dangerous for your pet or for the farm animals. We recommend focusing on the kiddos and leaving your pets at home with a trusted friend or family member.
