Pumpkin with Emma Rose's class

Today, I went in to Rosie's class to help them with a pumpkin. I found this awesome idea on Martha Stewart's web site and made it match Mrs. Scharich's class theme: Scharich's Stampede.

We made a Funkin Carousel with horses! (A funkin is a fake pumpkin. I just learned this term this week.) The students helped with painting, a little with hot gluing, and stuffing the bottom of the carousel. A tiny electric light will be placed in the middle of the horses. There is a competition at the Fall Festival this weekend for best pumpkin, and the pumpkins will also be auctioned off. I'm keeping my competitive fingers crossed!

Emma Rose has the cutest class this year, and I am so happy that I get to go in to help with projects!
