HOT SHOTS: Edgewater Students Transform Ordinary Pumpkins into Works of Art
Did you know that a pumpkin could be turned into a butterfly, cat, mouse or giraffe? Or better yet, Captain Underpants?
This October, more than 100 Edgewater Elementary students transformed ordinary pumpkins of every shape, size and color into extraordinary works of art in celebration of the school’s Halloween Book Character Pumpkin Project.
According to media specialist Stephanie Ashley, the pumpkin decorating project has become a favorite tradition at the school. It is open to students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Participation is voluntary. The children buy a pumpkin (real or fake), choose a favorite book to read and then create a character from the book out of the pumpkin.
This year’s patch included Dr Suess’ characters Thing 1 and Thing 2, the Grouchy Ladybug, Spongebob, Cinderella, Harry the Dirty Dog, Mother Goose, Captain Underpants, characters from Monsters University, the Lorax and more.
We took some pictures of these amazing pumpkins. Enjoy the photos and Happy Halloween!
