Pumpkins dressed as book characters

The pumpkins arrive in the library!

I got the idea from Pinterest to have a pumpkin decorating contest where students would decorate pumpkins as children’s book characters.   The Parent Teacher organization ( Home and School ) at our school was holding the book fair two weeks before Halloween, so I thought it would be a great idea to decorate the book fair with the pumpkins.  Home and School arranged for the pumpkins to be dropped off two weeks before the event.

It turned out to be the craziest two weeks in the school, so not as many pumpkins were decorated as we would have liked, but the ones we did get were fantastic.

Here are just some of the best:
