crayon pumpkins

so, i saw this several places on pinterest.  the ones i read used artificial pumpkins- which to be honest i wish we would have.  these turned out so awesome that i wish the kids could keep them!  we used the pumpkins we picked on our field trip to the pumpkin patch. 

simple craft that looks super cool!  we peeled the labels off of old crayons.  my super-duper awesome assistant and i hot glued the crayons onto the pumpkins.  we had the students decide which colors and what order they wanted them.  we used this time to review colors of course! then we discussed solids turning into liquid ....that's right, i tried to throw a little science into the mix of this craft :)  we helped the students melt the crayons with hair was awesome!

 side note- how cool does the inside of this box look? 

happy halloween!
