The baby recently had to turn in a “pumpkin book report” on his non-fiction book of choice. After a brief pass through the options on our at-home bookshelf, he quickly settled on Who Was Walt Disney? Good boy :-)
He had to read the book and answer four questions about it and then decorate a pumpkin based on the book. So cute! He wanted to do a Mickey Mouse pumpkin and I was all in. We bought a black pumpkin at Target, cut out ears from black cardstock and then he painted on the eyes. I helped draw the lines on with a pencil and then he filled it all in with paint. It took a couple of coats but not much time at all.
We talked about what he could put on the back and he settled on this quote. I thought it was perfect! I drew two lines on the back in pencil and then he wrote the quote with a paint pen.
I can’t wait for this to come back home so we can display it in his room every October. We’ve been putting out big brother’s Captain Underpants book report of yore since second grade as well. Of course, back then it could be ANY book, not just non-fiction.
Speaking of school, we have finished our first quarter and everyone is doing well and is very happy! I tell you what, 5th grade is no joke. I remember it being the hardest year of elementary school even “way back when”.
