5 Fun Places to Pick Your Own Pumpkins in Kent

As our holiday in Cornwall draws to a close

Thoughts turn to home

And how to continue the outdoor fun we have been having

We have had such a busy week

I think we will all need a few quiet days to recover

But then I am determined

That we will keep getting out and about

As October is here

It is time to start thinking about Halloween

And to plan some learning through play

Learning through pumpkin play

I have lots of lovely ideas

For my own little people

And I cannot wait to share them with you

We are going to need a fair few pumpkins

For our messy, sensory play

As well as some for decorating our home for Halloween

And so we will going out to the local farms

To have some seasonal fun

And pick our own

We loved picking our own pumpkins last year

It was our first time

And we went to a farm in Ashford

This year we are going to try somewhere new

But if Ashford is close for you
