Addison took her first field trip ever yesterday and we went to Hickory Nut Gap Farm.
She was stoked. Last week one of the teacher’s asked if I could come along and help with the kids. I said sure! They loaded 12 kids and 12 car seats into the church bus and hit the road. I am pretty sure that Addison’s favorite part was riding on the bus. I followed behind. Ella Kate was the same way with her kindergarten field trip…her fave part was riding the big cheese!
The kids saw a beehive and the bees making honey. They got to taste all of the apples they have in their orchard. They read an apple picking book to them. Then we took a tour and saw chickens, goats, cows, miniature horses, and two 600lb pigs with piglets. Then they got to slide on a 36″ corrugated slide. They played on a “spider web.” I think the kids liked the open barn play area the best! They had hay bales for jumping, a hay maze, and a corn box (sand box). Addison really enjoyed the corn box…she had corn in all sorts of places! After playing the kids had a picnic lunch. Fun was had by all!
