Storybook Pumpkins

Each year our entire school participates in the fun fall tradition of creating a storybook pumpkin. Each class makes one pumpkin and they are all lined up in the main hallway. They get better and better every year! These pictures are actually of last year's pumpkins. I made a great slideshow with them last year, but the service that was hosting it is no longer online, so now it's just a big black box on my blog. (Still bummed about that!) So, I thought I'd post these for you just in case you do the same thing and are looking for some inspiration.

We're in the process of creating this year's pumpkins so look for more pix real soon!

  2. Those are great! My fave is Jame and the Giant Peach! LOL! We do something similar, but the students make them at home and after our Halloween parade students judge them. Our media specialist gives the kids a penny and they drop their penny in a bucket next to their favorite one.

  4. This looks like so much fun! I've sent the link to my librarian because the one thing we have in abundance in Niger where I teach is big squash. They look a lot like pumpkins just a lighter color. This would be such a fun project for every class to take on! :)

  11. I LOVE this idea! Where do you get your pumpkins from? I am thinking about borrowing this fantastic idea and using it as a homework project. How do you decide who is doing what character (or is it just a surprise?) Thanks for the great inspiration!
