Virtual Storybook Pumpkin Patch Event!

Big picture

The Simpsonville Family Resource Center is hosting its first virtual storybook pumpkin patch event!

*Decorate your storybook pumpkin to represent your favorite book or book character!

*Gather the decorating supplies. Acrylic pants or permanent markers work best. Watercolors tend to run and spray paint will gradually dissolve the pumpkin. You can add materials like yarn, buttons, wiggly eyes, etc.

*Decorate your pumpkin with or without carving! If you are unable to get a pumpkin, feel free to draw and "decorate" a pumpkin on a piece of paper.

*Complete your pumpkin’s story. Send your child's name, grade, teacher, pumpkin’s name, book title, author, and describe your character.

*Submit pictures by Friday, October 30th to Photos and videos will be added to a virtual storybook pumpkin patch gallery walk video which will be sent to families.
