Fall is a wonderful time to get out and enjoy activities throughout the community. There is a blog, MacaroniKid that gives information about events for specific towns. . Here are a few that would be great for families of young children.
Fall Festival (of course!)
We are preparing for a lot of fun THIS THURSDAY from 5-7pm – right here at your preschool. We hope you will join us for the fun.
Hot dog meal (with chips, banana, carrots, and cookie), carnival type games, crafts, pumpkin patch, preschool friendly campfire and so much more! You don’t need to pre-register or anything. We will collect money at the door to cover the cost of dinner. Adults, $3.00, children 2 yr and older, $2.00
Touch a Truck
Come see fire trucks, police cars, cool cars, construction equipment and other awesome trucks!! PLUS: Food, Games, Prizes and More Fun!
Visit a pumpkin patch
Aldersgate patch is open from 10am – dark. The proceeds from the patch support youth mission projects. Your child will have chances during the day to check out the patch with their class. It would be a fun time to stop and pick a pumpkin and then play on the playground. Just a quick reminder – we ask you to close the sandboxes and keep toys on the playground you find them.
Here is a place to find out more about the area pumpkin patches. (click on the picture to take you to the online post)
Milldale Farm Fest
Explore the acres of this well-known farm. Among other things enjoy a petting farm, crafts, fishing and more.
Trunk or Treat
Aldersgate UMC annually hosts a trunk or treat. This year’s event is Sunday, October 27th, 4-6pm. Children wear costumes and visit the various decorated trunks (sponsored by members and groups at Aldersgate UMC). Be sure to visit the Toy Story themed trunk sponsored by the Preschool Board. There are also games and other activities for families to enjoy.
