Because taking a center full of children 6 and under to a pumpkin patch would be a logistical challenge, each fall, Day Nursery brings the pumpkin patch to the children. Day Nursery Federal Center Director Sarah Parks shared these pictures with me from her center’s pumpkin patch last week. She reported that many of the children had a hard time picking out a pumpkin and had to check them all out. Others, she wrote, knew exactly which one they wanted: Sam found his perfect pumpkin in our pretend pumpkin patch. Sam was also very helpful in collecting the extra pumpkins and putting them in Ms. Sarah’s wagon to bring back inside for our friends who weren’t here today. Here are some of Sarah’s pictures from last Wednesday.
