What is a Storybook Pumpkin?

Martin Library is growing a storybook pumpkin patch, and we need your

help! Decorate a pumpkin to look like one of your favorite book characters, and

bring it to the library to plant in our Storybook Pumpkin Patch!

***No Carved or Cut Pumpkins Will Be Accepted***

· Think of your favorite book and design your pumpkin based on your favorite character from that book.

· Purchase a pumpkin that is no larger in size than a basketball.

· Gather your decorating supplies. Acrylic paints or permanent markerswork best. Watercolors tend to run, and spray paint will gradually dissolvethe pumpkin. Other options include adding materials such as yarn,buttons, wiggly eyes, etc.
