Our preschool/daycare had their pumpkin patch right in the backyard since we do not physically leave the premises. We had it set up for the week while they pretending to buy pumpkins at the stand. The little pumpkins and gourds traveled all over the backyard in these little hands. The big pumpkins all went home with the kids for them to decorate with their family. The weather was perfect for us and we were able to also have lunch outside during our patch.
