My son came home with a writing assignment and this cute little pumpkin last week. The directions were to create a disguise for it because pumpkins are in extreme danger of being carved up or made into pies at this time of year. :)
After a couple of days of thinking of a disguise and then raiding Mom's crafting stash...
A disguise began to form. (I helped with the machine sewing of the side seams and he did the rest).
Doesn't look like a pumpkin anymore does it? There was also a creative writing element to go along with this fun project describing the pumpkin's name, where it came from and all sorts of fun, interesting tidbits. :)
Many of my "growing up" years were spent on the west coast beaches of Oceanside in San Diego County, CA and I love all beachy things (especially seashells). Now I live in New Mexico, (lots of sand, but no ocean). I totally love creating with color! I'm married to the best guy ever and I am a mom to 3 really great boys who are quickly growing into superb young men right before my very eyes!
