Parenting: Fun, Fall Activities with Kids – Silverman’s Farm & NY Botanical Garden

If you live in the NYC metro/CT area, and you are looking for some fun things with kids – check out Silverman’s Farm for apple picking and the New York Botanical Garden’s Haunted Pumpkin Patch!
I’ve been to both with my kids in the past week.  Silverman’s is in Easton, CT and has not only fabulous and well-organized apple picking and tractor rides, but a nice animal farm (we loved the goat walk!), hay maze for kids, pumpkin patch and market.

The Haunted Pumpkin patch at the NYBG has a child’s playhouse made entirely of pumpkins, a pumpkin puppet theatre, live performances by some s-c-a-r-y black cats and spooky skeletons and all sorts of critters made out of pumpkins!  Not to mention some snacks and games sponsored by Whole Foods…

We had a great time attending both and I hope you can, too!
