Recipe for a Happy Day
Take 28 wiggly kindergarteners. Squeeze them into a school bus with their parents and take them on a bumpy ride to a pumpkin farm.
Release them to a playground, then herd them to the learning area to see all the different kinds of pumpkins and gourds that the farmers grow.
Pile them into wagons and use tractors to pull them through the farm to the pumpkin patch.
Let each kindergartener pick a pumpkin to take home.
Take them back to the play area and feed them hot dogs. Let them play some more before squeezing them back onto the bus.
Yield: 28 happy, tired, wiggly kindergarteners. 28 pumpkins to take home. 28 happy, tired, caffeine-deprived parents (they don't sell coffee at the farm). 1 happy day.
