  • πŸŽƒ Research local pumpkin patches

    During fall, many pumpkin patches open up that offer different experiences, like petting zoos, corn mazes, and bounce house. Think about which locations are most convenient for you and decide which attractions are non-negotiable for you and your family. This website shows where local patches will be all over the US this fall: https://link.joinarrange.com/visitingthepumpkinpatch_localpatch

    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

  • πŸŽƒ 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. This Elmchee pumpkin carving toolkit on Amazon has 13 different tools: https://link.joinarrange.com/visitingthepumpkinpatch_carvingtools

  • πŸŽƒ 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.

    In some cases, the pumpkins and other fall items are more expensive than you may have imagined. Decide before you visit how many pumpkins you want to bring home, or how much money you plan on spending while your family is there on pumpkins, treats, and whatever else.
