If the back-to-school (and work) grind already has you frazzled, you’re probably looking forward to Thanksgiving—not just for the turkey, but for the extra day off and the family time. The question is what will you do with that time?
Here is a slate of simple ideas to celebrate fall in all its glory before you have to batten down the hatches and survive another winter:

Go Agro
The Agriculture Museum is planning a special day of Thanksgiving-related activities, including apple cider making and tasting, leather crafts, and baking corn bread. The regular October list of daily demonstrations is custom-made for families, with rabbit care, calf-grooming, children’s crafts and stories, and a fabulous exhibit on honey bees.

Pick Your Pumpkin
Halloween has a way of sneaking up on us, and most kids would love nothing better than to start getting ready right now. This year, Saunders Farm is offering something new—the Pumpkin Patch Tour Wagon Ride. Take a hayride around the farm and tour the pumpkin patch, get off and choose your ‘jack’, then pay in the Farm Shop on your way home. Don’t miss the full array of ‘haunting season’ activities at the farm, including mazes, a pirate ship, the kids’ discovery barn and the haunted hayride.
