Reminder: Unplugged Project on Monday

By , October 27, 2007 6:16 pm

Just a reminder to anyone who would like to join us for our weekly Unplugged Project, we will meet here Monday to link to our blog posts about the project.

This week’s project:
Decorate a Small PumpkinSupplies:
– a small pumpkin (or big if you want!)
– paint and brushes

Have your child (or yourself!) decorate a small pumpkin with paint. Leave it up to them. Younger children will want to just dab on paint. Older children or adults might have a plan for a face, animal, design…whatever! If you don’t have a pumpkin, how about drawing one on a piece of paper and letting your child decorate that?

If you don’t have a blog and want to play along, please email me your story and photos by Sunday night and I will put them in my Monday post (unplugyourkids “at” gmail “dot” com). For bloggers who want to join in, there will be a Mr. Linky where you can link to your post.

    You know, I really really like the photos that you take to accompany your posts. This one is so good. You have quite the eye. I’m posting my pumpkin (my monstrosity) soon then going to bed. Sigh. I’m looking forward to seeing the others. Can we have a project next time that is NOT arty? Like a reading/puzzle/math thing? SIGH

    Thanks Andree, I can’t take the credit for this one though. It came from Wikipedia!

    Sigh. We got sick instead. i decided no one wanted to see a pumpkin decorated with kleenex.

    Mom Unplugged, I missed your blog last week, but you’ll be tickled to know that we tackled this exact project at our house! I like to paint them, and then we can cut the pumpkins later, when we can enjoy the roasted seedy goodness without the spectre of candy hanging over us.

    I can’t wait to see what you choose to do this week!
