We are growing a storybook pumpkin patch, and we need your help! Decorate a pumpkin to look like one of your favorite book characters, and bring it to school to plant in our Storybook Pumpkin Patch!

**No Carved or Cut Pumpkins!**

Think of your favorite book and design your pumpkin based on your favorite character from that book.

Purchase a pumpkin that is NO larger in size than a basketball. Foam or plastic pumpkins work well too.

Gather your decorating supplies.  Acrylic paints or permanent markers work best.  Watercolors tend to run, and spray paint will gradually dissolve the pumpkin. You can add materials, like yarn, buttons, wiggly eyes, etc.

Decorate your pumpkin without carving, cutting, or poking holes in it.

Participation is completely voluntary.  This is not a contest.

Each decorated pumpkin will earn the owner one prize (limit one pumpkin per student). 

Bring your pumpkin to the library: Anytime AFTER Fall Break

Take your pumpkin home: On Monday, October 31st

You will get your prize when you pick up your pumpkin.

Have fun and be creative!

Note: If your child needs help getting it home please make plans to do this.  All pumpkins that are left behind will be thrown away by 4:00 that afternoon.
