We went to the pumkin patch this weekend because it’s mid-October and it was gorgeous! It’s just about peak Fall right now in Western Pennsylvania and the weather could not have been better. It was a day to be outside.
We visited Ritter’s Pumpkin Patch, which is a very easy pumpkin patch. They have a huge selection of pumpkins and gourds which are cleaned and sitting in bins for you to choose. The best thing? It was close to home and not crowded so we had plenty of time to touch and examine as many pumpkins and gourds as we wanted. The textures were incredible! Tom spend half an hour just touching gourds. He couldn’t choose! Eventually I had to help him make some selections or we would have been there all day.
When we got home, Tommy treated me to his very own Halloween song, “Shake Your Spooky Pumpkin.” Check it out!
And if that’s not enough Halloween fun for you, here’s a list of Tommy’s new favorite Halloween books. These books are available in Braille from Beulah Reimer Legacy. (Thanks Aunt Debbie!)
- T. Rex Trick-Or-Treats by Lois G. Grambling
- The Haunted Ghoul Bus by Lisa Trumbauer
- Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler
If you know of any good Halloween apps please tell me in a comment. I am finding apps to be so hit or miss lately. We want book apps with Autoplay and sometimes thing that are listed as a book turn out to be just games. It’s really disappointing!
We are sticking with an old favorite Halloween app for now – The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin. It is read in a very scary voice! Tons of fun.
