|But it's a pumpkin instead of a potato. Genius, huh?|
I also found this picture during my "Mr. Potato Head" Google Image search. It simply must be included here.
|Darth Tater. Genius again.|
Ok, back to Pumpkin Head. Eli's very creative teachers had drilled holes, using a screwdriver, in a pumpkin and had the Mr. Potato Head pieces out for play. What a fantastic idea! We had to do it too.
|My Pumpkin Head injury. I had to push hard to get those holes in.|
|I do think the pain was worth it, however, to see all of these happy faces...on Children Heads and Pumpkin Heads alike.|
|My picture of the final products. Sorry Green Hat Pumpkin Guy...your other pink ear seems to be missing in action.|
|And...Abby wanted to take a picture of the final products too. I think her picture is much more artistic than mine. She must have her Daddy's photography genes.|
My thoughts on using a real pumpkin versus the fake pumpkin: My first inclination toward the fake pumpkins had been my desire to keep them until next year and I didn't want to get pumpkin guts on our Mr. Potato Head pieces. BUT, the fake pumpkins have been leaving behind some dust, fake pumpkin guts, if you will. There is dusty stuff on our Mr. Potato Head pieces and I will have to wash them anyways. That said, I think I would rather have done this with real pumpkins.
What great fun!
Thanks to Eli's wonderful teachers for another fantastic idea in their LONG, LONG line of fantastic ideas. We are so thankful for amazing teachers in the life of our son.
