Pumpkin Decorating Event

At my High School I had a pumpkin decorating event this past Thursday.  It was part of a much larger event involving High School Students helping younger kids in the community with crafts, games, face painting, hayrides and more. Thanks to Discount School Supply and for providing some fabulous donations of craft supplies for the pumpkin decorating.  I got to tap into my Elementary Art Teaching days and so did my High School students.  I think they had just as much fun as the younger kids.  Here is just a sampling of some of the pumpkins that were decorated.

Decorating fun!

The kids loved it! What a great event!

Here are some of the pumpkins my High School Sculpture class carved to decorate for the event.  For some of my students,  this was their first experience carving pumpkins. Really. I'm glad I could provide them with the experience.

Face painting was a HUGE hit!

  1. great day! that's good when older children participate in such activities too...they are still children after all!i loved the pumpkins!
    have a great week ahead!

  2. It's never too late to learn how to carve a pumpkin! And how generous of DSS and Craft Project Ideas to contribute to your students' learning. I love that. (And I'm chuckling that my blog is still called Flour and Water in your sidebar...what on earth?).
