Bensenville, Ill. — Fischer Farm invites young people to embark on a unique journey of discovery with two Halloween-time programs: “Creepy Crawlies,” 4:30-5:30 p.m. Thursday, October 26, and “Pumpkin Science,” 10-11:30 a.m. on Sunday, October 29. Located at 16W680 Old Grand Avenue in Bensenville, Fischer Farm offers the perfect setting for these hands-on experiences.
At “Creepy Crawlies,” children ages 6 and up learn about the bugs and critters that call the farm home before going on a bug scavenger hunt to see what there is to find. Then, they’ll create their own Halloween-inspired creepy crawly. The fee is $8 for this program and $5 for those residing within Bensenville Park District boundaries.
“Pumpkin Science” combines the fun of pumpkin carving with an educational exploration of the inner workings and growth of pumpkins. Participants aged 10 and older will choose a pumpkin, carve it into a creative masterpiece and gain valuable insights into the anatomy and growth of these iconic fall fruits. The fee is just $5, with a discounted rate of $3 available for those living within the Bensenville Park District boundaries.
Register for both programs in advance at the Deer Grove Leisure Center, 1000 W. Wood Street, to secure a spot.
