Pumpkins! ... Angry Birds Style

In case you're just tuning in, I'm a teacher.
And at my school, our staff competes in a pumpkin decorating contest every year.
Our student body casts votes for their favorite entry throughout the week before Halloween by bringing in canned food (one can = one vote).
Last year, I was in the top three with a super cool cheeseburger pumpkin ... so this year, I'm hoping for #1!
The trick is appealing to KIDS!
So, I decided to go for the game that's all the rave right now .... ANGRY BIRDS!
And after perusing some pumpkin pinboards on Pinterest, I got some great ideas and got to work.
I spray primed my five pumpkins (sounds silly, I know...), then spray painted them, and cut out the eyes, beaks, etc. out of colored card stock, and hot-glued them on .....


What do you think???
Would you vote for my Angry Birds pumpkins!? :-)

**Side note:  Volleyball season will be ending for me after this week!!!  That means more time for my blog again!
I can't wait to get back "in touch" with all of you fabulous folks again!!!
See you SOON! :-)
