We’re getting excited for the new Peanuts Movie to hit the big screen on November 6th, and we were thrilled to see a few of our favorite Peanuts characters at our local pumpkin patch. If you have yet to visit the pumpkin patch this season, you’ll have to check out this list of pumpkin patches across the country who are sponsors of the new Peanuts Movie coming out.
They all have cute Peanuts Movie blow ups for the kids,
along with Peanuts posters,
stickers and pumpkin stencils.
We had such a fun night as a family. We went to HeeHaw Farms, our local pumpkin patch. It was 86 degrees the night we went!
I think I was a little over dressed for the hot weather in my jeans and cardi…but what’s a girl to do when she’s craving cool fall weather and the clothes that come with it? Sweat it out, right? 🙂
There’s so many fun things to do now at these pumpkin patches, the kids had a blast going down slides, burying themselves in piles of corn and hunting for pumpkins.
We came home with a cute Snoopy pumpkin stencil. How cute is little Snoopy’s profile?!
Don’t you just love pumpkin stencils? They make it so much easier to carve a pumpkin. Just nail the paper stencil onto the pumpkin,
and just trace around the lines of the stencil with a sharp knife.
Once you take the paper stencil off of the pumpkin, you can cut through the pumpkin to connect your cut lines to make your design come to life. Thankfully this Snoopy stencil is pretty easy! If you’d like to carve a Snoopy pumpkin too, click here to download this printer friendly stencil.
Isn’t he so cute all lit up? Our big family pumpkin carving night is coming up, and I’m excited to add more carved pumpkins to join him. I’m thinking we need a little Charlie Brown pumpkin to join him.
Here’s a few pumpkin carving tips that have helped us:
Preserve your carved pumpkin a little longer with petroleum jelly. With a disposable glove, rub all the cut edges of the carved pumpkin with the petroleum jelly to help preserve the pumpkin a little longer. This is helpful if you carve your pumpkin way before Halloween and you want to keep it looking good longer than usual.
Cut a big opening for inserting candles into your pumpkin. Rather than just cutting around the top of the pumpkin stem on top to insert your candles, cut down the back side of the pumpkin as well as around the top to make a larger opening for placing your lit candles. If you’ve ever burned your hand placing a candle into a pumpkin (hand raised), then you can see the beauty of this tip. No more burned hands!
And here’s just a little about THE PEANUTS MOVIE – IN THEATERS NOVEMBER 6. We are so excited to see this one, I think it will be such a great family movie!
Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang make their big-screen debut, like they’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation. Charlie Brown, the world’s most beloved underdog, embarks upon an epic and heroic quest, while his best pal, the lovable beagle Snoopy, takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis, the Red Baron. From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.

We sure do love this time of year.
