Decorate a pumpkin and bring it to the library beginning October 2nd through October 22nd

Hafen Elementary Library’s Storybook Pumpkin Patch

My Favorite Book Character


Hafen 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!


No Carved or Cut Pumpkins Will Be Accepted

○ Think of your favorite book and design your pumpkin based on your favorite character from that book.

○ Purchase 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.

○ Print out and answer the questions on the following entry page.

○ Bring your pumpkin and entry page to the library beginning Wednesday, October 3rd . The last day to bring them in is Monday, October 22ndh.

Pumpkins are to be taken home at the end of school on Friday, November 2nd. If your child needs assistance getting it home please make arrangements to do this.All pumpkins that are left behind will be disposed of by 3:30 that afternoon.

○ Participation is completely voluntary. This is not a contest; however each decorated pumpkin will earn the owner a special prize from the library.


Have fun and be creative!

Mrs. Brooks, Librarian
