Don’t have a palette for pumpkins? Not to worry. The Pumpkin Patch offers a great way to interact with your kids for an after-school or weekend activity. Check out 101 different things you can do with a pumpkin for creative ways to make use of your newly acquired orange ball of fun!
Have some spare time? The Palisades-Malibu YMCA is also in need of volunteers throughout the week to help customers pick out and carry their pumpkins to their cars. This would also be great activity with your kids that demonstrates the spirit of volunteerism, which is timely as Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
