KP Storybook Pumpkin Patch

  • Choose your favorite story book character.
  • Get a SMALL pumpkin. It can be real or fake. Fake is best!!!
  • Decorate your pumpkin to look like your book character by using acrylic paint, permanent markers, and/or glue to add things onto the pumpkin.
  • Pumpkins CANNOT be carved, cut, or have holes poked in them – otherwise they will get super stinky! Please know watercolors and spray paint do not work well.
  • Fill out the entry form on the back of this paper, please return it with your pumpkin.
  • Please bring your pumpkin to the KP Library Storybook Pumpkin Patch anytime between Monday, October 23 – Thursday, October 26. It will be judged during the KP Book Fair Night on Thursday, October 26.
  • Please pick up your entry by the end of the day on Tuesday, October 31.
  • Prizes will be awarded for the most creative pumpkins!
