Happy Halloween & our pumpkins

Wishing a happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it!

And while we're at it, I want to show you the pumpkins we made this year for my kids school.

My son was given the challenge of creating a piece of Halloween decor using only recycled materials. So we built this pumpkin:

Using two milk cartons, newspapers, and one chopstick. Here it is in the first stages of making...

Then we wrapped a piece of green yarn around the chopstick and decorated with some leftover bits of black EVA foam.

For my daughters class we were supposed to actually carve a real pumpkin. But then, mostly due to the high temperatures we've been having these past few days, a few of the early delivered pumpkins started to rotten and my daughter's teacher told us to improvise instead.

And so we did. We cut a pumpkin shape out of glittery orange EVA foam, decorated it and glued a ribbon on top for hanging.

All in all, I think we fulfilled our mission. And now it's time to sit back and enjoy.

Happy Tuesday, and happy Halloween!
