Pumpkin Picking for Families

  1. Leafy Treasure Hunt: Explore a local park and collect colorful leaves, acorns, and pinecones. Make a huge pile and let your toddler run through them or take them home and use them for crafts or counting games later.

  2. Pumpkin Patch Visit: Find a nearby pumpkin patch for a memorable outing. Let your little one pick their pumpkin to decorate at home. Take that memorable photo. You will love comparing these year on year.
  3. Nature Walk: Take a leisurely stroll in a nearby forest or nature reserve. Encourage your child to observe birds, insects, and the changing landscape. The perfect endorphin rich activity to share with babies, toddlers or young children.
  4. Picnic in the Park: Pack a picnic basket with your child's favourite snacks and enjoy an alfresco meal in a local park or beauty spot. Do this one now before the nights draw in and make the most of the still light early evenings.
