Here’s my challenge – find 52 fun things to do, preferably that I haven’t done before or rarely do. This week, we went to a corn maze. This particular maze, at Farmland Adventures in Springdale, had an Australian theme. There are two mazes, one shaped like a mama kangaroo with a baby in her pouch, and one shaped like a koala bear. The lack of rain this year means the corn isn’t as high as I imagined it would be, but it is still hard to find your way out. We took the mama kangaroo maze and got out in about 45 minutes. This maze also included a game, where you “collect” rubbings of different animals and secret words from stations within the maze. They also have a petting zoo, with piglets, goats, sheep, ponies, and donkeys, and pony rides, which my 6-year-old niece loved. Finally, they have a big pumpkin patch – and my son picked out a 35-pound pumpkin, which only cost $8. The cost of admission was $9 for adults and $7 for children, $10 for children includes unlimited pony rides. You can find more info at We had a great time!
