Students at the Pettis County Early Childhood Cooperative enjoyed a collection of autumn activities on Thursday on the school's playground during their Fall Day.

The preschoolers walked through a hay bale maze, played pumpkin bowling, raked leaves and sampled foods including apples, corn on the cob and sunflower seeds.
