Recycle Broken Crayons Into New Creations!

Need a quick and easy craft idea for the kids? Try home made crayons! It’s a great way to reuse and reinvent that pile of broken/paperless crayons you know you have lying around right now.

Fall Fun At Patriot Place in Foxboro

Patriot Place in Foxboro has free family friendly activities planned all week long, including trick or treating on Saturday afternoon!

Pumpkin Picking on the South Shore

It’s time to hit the pumpkin patches and find those perfect gourds! We took the kids this weekend (a little weird to be climbing over pumpkin vines in shorts) and had a blast. There are some great local places to pick-your-own pumpkins, many include other attractiosn like hayrides, animals, and even corn mazes!

Fall Fun at Franklin Park Zoo

Franklin Park Zoo is hosting two fun fall events this month. Check out Farm Day on October 16th, and Zoo Howl on October 29th & 30th! (See full post for times and details)

{Fall Fun} Sauchuk Farm Corn Maze & More!

What screams FALL more than a corn maze? Head on down to down to Sauchuk Farm in Plympton to test your sense of direction in their new fall maze! There are two mazes to choose from at the farm, the main maze (takes 1-2 hours to complete) and the kiddie maze if you’re feeling a little less adventurous (takes about 15 minutes to get through).
