My Son's 6th grade Language Arts Assignment

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. :)
