Decorating pumpkins for Red Ribbon Week at school

Oct. 23 - 31st was Red Ribbon Week at the boy's school. The PTA always has each classroom decorate a pumpkin in honor of the week. This year's theme was "without drugs the possibilities are infinite." Since I am the homeroom mom for Tater's first grade class and for Bubby's fourth grade class, it was up to me to come up with a design for both classes pumpkins. For Tater's class we painted a fake pumpkin blue to represent the ocean. We then glued on pictures of the continents. I gave each child a boy/girl to color and a star to write down what they'd like to be when they grow up. Our theme was "say no to drugs and reach for the stars." For Bubby's class we decorated another fake pumpkin to look like Albert Einstein. The bubble over his head reflects the PTA's theme for the week. The students all vote on one winner for each grade level. I'm proud to say that our Einstein won for the fourth grade and is still being proudly displayed in Bubby's classroom. We're really proud of Tater's class pumpkin as well. It was placed in their classroom after the week was over and they are very proud of their work, as am I. You can click on each picture to see a larger version.
