Book Character Pumpkins: Not-So-Scary Book Reports

2018-11-21T19:13:10+00:00September 25th, 2018|Categories: Crafts|0 Comments

Yay, we get to do a book report!!!  said no kid ever. But we’re willing to bet that if you asked them to do a Book Character Pumpkin book report, you might just get that reaction!

The idea is simple: get kids to read a book, and then decorate a pumpkin at home to either resemble one of the book’s characters or go with the book’s theme. The kids then get to bring their masterpieces to school and present both their pumpkins and book reports at the same time. Looking for a cute themed template for the reports? Try these ones we found here!

If your students’ parents are anything like we are, they just might get a sinking feeling in their stomachs at the thought of having to gut and carve pumpkins with their littles. Oh the mess….. We therefore recommend setting some ‘no-carve’ rules, and maybe even giving the kids some simple ideas to get started with. Less can be more people! Parents – you’re welcome.

If you take on this book character pumpkin project, you will be in good company! Here are some cute ideas we found, and we’re not gonna lie: we’re dying to try some of these at home ourselves.
