We found a farm birthday party activity that John Deere lovers, Case IH enthusiasts, New Holland fans or whatever brand you cheer for can put aside their differences and truly enjoy…a corn pit!
This is our second year to make a cornpit in the garage. I have to admit up front that we got this idea from a friend and then implemented it ourselves. We just borrowed 9 bales of straw (put them around the edge to form a square), bought a tarp (and wrapped it under the straw) and borrowed some corn from papa. We will return all of the straw and most of the corn.
Everybody that accepted the rule “No throwing corn” thoroughly enjoyed the party.
We gave out little John Deere toy tractors as party favors and my mom made cakes. She used about six boxes of cake mix.
She worries about people going hungry.
I worry about people having properly cooked protein.
I don’t think these kids worried about much of anything with abundant entertainment and beautiful weather!
