painting pumpkins and gourds

Gourds and pumpkins are great tools for learning.

We have used them for sorting and classifying.

Ordered them by size.

Weighed them.

Now it is time for them to make room for something else at the Investigate It Table.

Our pumpkins and gourds have one more job before they are relegated to the compost pile.

We set up one of our tables all set up  ready for painting - paper, paint pots, brushes and gourds.

Artists set to work using the pumpkins and gourds as their canvas.

They used multiple colors,
felt the texture of the gourds,
and mixed the paints together to create a fall swirl of colour. 

Their painting provided new fall inspired creativity for our classroom.
