Yoda Pumpkin

A fun yoda pumpkin perfect for your Star Wars fan!

This past week Garrett’s School had there annual Fall Festival. Our Home and School committee (that’s what we call PTO for some reason) does a fantastic job with it every year. They have an annual pumpkin contest and this year Garrett wanted to do a Star Wars themed pumpkin for his entry. We hit the produce section and made this fun Yoda Pumpkin.

We had a lot of fun putting him together. We broke off bamboo skewers and hammered the items we used in with a rubber mallet. Here are the list of parts:

  • Ears – a gourd cut in half
  • Eyeballs – tomatillos cut in half
  • Eyelids – cantaloupe skin
  • Nose – A lemon rind carved
  • Mouth – a chayote squash with the end cut off to make it flat

We set him up on a plastic pot and wrapped some burlap and a leather tie around the waist to make it look like his clothes.  Garrett won 2nd place in the 3rd grade for his pumpkin. The first grade winner was dressed in our schools uniform.

 
I love fall it is so full of fun things to do, I can’t wait to go to the pumpkin patch! What does your family do every year to celebrate fall?
