This year I hosted a "decorate a pumpkin to look like a book character" contest in the library. Since this was the first year, I was a little nervous about the quantity and quality of the pumpkins, but I was really happy with the entries!
There were only a couple of rules:
1. Pumpkin must resemble a book or book character
2. No carving the pumpkin
3. One entry per student
Yes, clearly there was a lot of help from moms and dads, but I sent this home as a fun family project that would also promote literacy (one of my favorite things to do!).
