Pumpkin Decorating Fun

This week the teachers got to have a little Fall Fun and decorate some pumpkins!!  It's a small fundraiser to help buy books for our library and it's lots of fun for the kids and teachers!!

On Monday, several teachers brought in their fun, pumpkin creation!    
A jar was placed in front of each one and the students get to vote all week for their favorite one using loose change.  Each cent is considered a vote!  

Take a look at this "triple scoop" pumpkin creation!!  This teacher went ALL OUT on hers!!!  
As you probably guessed, this one is currently in first place!!



Here are some of the other pumpkins that were decorated, carved, painted, etc.....
(mine is the cookie monster one....I went cute & simple!!)






Aren't they amazing???  The kids are really having a good time voting for their favorites!!

  8. I’m attempting to do this right now. I have both of my “scoops” of ice cream painted and I have the flowerpot lines drawn on as if it were a sugar cone but in addition to the foam insulation was there anything used to keep
