Storybook Pumpkin Patch at the Library

Jackson Public 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!

PLEASE, No Carved or Cut Pumpkins

*Think of your favorite book and design your pumpkin based on your favorite character from that book.
*Use a pumpkin that is no larger in size than a basketball.
*Gather your decorating supplies. Acrylic paints or permanent markers work best. Watercolors tend to run, and spray paint will gradually dissolve the pumpkin. Other options include adding materials such as yarn, buttons, wiggly eyes, etc.
*Decorate your pumpkin without carving, cutting, or poking holes in it.
*Bring your pumpkin to the library and let us know who you have created.
*This is not a contest, however each decorated pumpkin will earn the owner one library prize.
*Have fun and be creative!
