With pumpkin season here, the University’s United Methodist Church is hosting a toddler class for the first pick of the year.


WICHITA FALLS (KFDX / KJTL) – We’re waiting for perfect weather for the start of pumpkin season!

Those from the University’s United Methodist Church started having fun organizing their toddler classes and families and it didn’t disappoint!

“It’s just a beautiful day and it’s just kind of an invitation to the season,” said parent Chelsea Sesody.

It’s officially October and some are wasting no time getting into the spirit of fall and Halloween!

“They love to run around and see all the different pumpkins, smell them, sit on the crates and everything and with the hay they can interact with,” said Crystal Morgan, a toddler teacher.

So, with the annual pumpkin patch, so are the students in their toddler class!

“It’s really sweet, very sweet to see them running around and picking up pumpkins and just having fun,” Sesody said.

Give teachers like Morgan the chance to see the extroverted sides of their students.

“It’s fun to see them with their families and how different their personalities are from where we are in class all day,” Morgan said.

And a new learning opportunity, because these kids have chosen their own pumpkins.

“So Monday we’re going to start our pumpkin week lesson and we’ll paint our pumpkins that we have here today in our classroom,” Morgan said.

While parents like Sesody are enjoying it just as much and are ready for a month of festivities.

“We just can’t wait to carve pumpkins and all that. “

The University’s United Methodist Church pumpkin patch will be open daily from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. and then on Saturdays they will open earlier from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
