5 more days! Yes, the countdown to Halloween has begun! I’m really excited because I love seeing so many pumpkins everywhere. My friends at the Dallas Arboretum had a great idea for all of their pumpkins. They made pumpkin houses, pumpkin landscapes and a huge pumpkin village out of them.
It took more than 40,000 pumpkins to create these gardens bursting with fall colors. That’s a lot of pumpkins. I don’t have that many pumpkins but even with a couple we can have tons of fun!
What we really do is create pumpkin obstacle courses. Use small pumpkins like orange sports cones and zig-zag in and out of them. You’ll be surprised how much the kids get into it. Let them create a course for you too. We often play so hard that we never get to even carving our pumpkins. We wind up doing that the next day! (Last Halloween we actually carved our pumpkins the day after! I guess when I saw I’m flexible when it comes to playing it’s true!)
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
