In the Class and On the Farm

We are proud to have successfully completed a pilot Agriculture Education program called “In the Class and On the Farm”!  This year Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Cooke’s 2nd grade classes from Washington Elementary in McPherson, KS participated.  Agreeing with the need for Ag Education in our youth, Farm Bureau of McPherson, Krehbiel’s Specialty Meats, 1st Bank of Kansas, and PrairieLand Partners John Deere provided scholarships for this year’s classes.  The program included an “in class” lesson provided by Grammy’s teachers and a day “on the farm”.  All the lessons aligned with the state standards and focused on what Agriculture is and how it affects our everyday, along with lessons in the core content areas!

For myself, as one of the teachers at Grammy’s, I can say the program was  challenging to plan and setup, but incredibly fun!!!  Here are a few pictures.  I wish I could share all of them!  The 2nd graders were eager learners – it was certainly a joy to teach them!

The whole family will be entertained at Grammy’s.


 FINAL WEEKEND!!!  Come for the first time, or come play one last time!!!

Oct 30-31 Potter at work! Scarecrow cookie craft!  FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT:  VeggieTale’s “Moe & the Big Exit” – refreshments available – Bring your lawn chairs and blankets-showtime @7:00 pm!

NEW THIS YEAR – The Destruction Zone!!!  Come and experience Thor’s Hammer and The Pumpkin-Pult.  These two attractions are smashing and hurling all sorts of gourds to the delight of the visitors.  At the Build-N-Blast, build your own creation, and then try your hand at blasting it to the ground with our slingshots, or have a blasting contest with a friend!  Prices vary depending on the activity.

The Pumpkin Play offers a variety of free games for the family.  Stay and play until the sun goes down!

The pumpkin train is a favorite for all ages at Grammy’s.  This barrel train will take its passengers on a tour of Grammy’s.  The ride makes its way through tunnels and fields, eventually reaching the pumpkin patch.  Here each rider gets to cut his or her own We-Be-Little pumpkin.  Then hold on because the train will be taking its passengers back to the Depot.

Throughout the day, Grammy will be inviting children to a free story time.  They will be led in songs, poems, and stories about autumn time.

Crafts will also be offered throughout the day.  Each week will feature a different craft, so come back often!  The cost per craft will vary.
