Spookley the Square Pumpkin

We love the story of "Spookley".  Last year, we made him out of craft sticks so this year I thought they should make their pumpkin exactly how they wanted to.  HERE are our "Spookley's" from last year. We began by reading the story (it also comes with a great CD with the story on it).  Then, the kids grabbed whichever color they wanted, I supplied the googly eyes, and some wooden shapes, scissors and glue.  When they had each created their own pumpkin, we made a mini pumpkin patch on our wall.  Super cute and the kids are so proud of their "different" pumpkins.  Gotta love creativity!  After making the pumpkins, we did a little pumpkin bowling using some bottles filled with colored water and a mini pumpkin.  Who knew pumpkins made fabulous bowling balls??
