Corn Maze Field Trip

Monday, we went to the Cajun Corn Maze for one of their Home School Days.  They offer one in October and one in November.  There are lots of things for the kids to do besides going through the maze.  They added a few activities this year too.  They have slides, water duckies, a corn crib, cow train rides, pumpkin blasters, corn cannons, pig races, a petting farm, and an AG in the Classroom information area along with a covered pavilion with picnic tables.  We even got some free Kleinpeter ice cream!

There were almost 100 kids in our group this year along with several other groups who attended.  It was a great turn out and the weather was beautiful. 

Getting our information before we get started from Old MacDonald!

PA170181a This activity is a lot of fun.  We spent the day there to get our moneys worth :)  It is a little pricey when you have a large family but so worth it for a full, fun day.  When we got home, it was bath time.  They were covered in dirt.

(fun + dirt = a great day)
