Kindergarten students at Forrest Hunt Elementary School and parents got creative during a recent pumpkin project.

All three kindergarten classes were challenged to come up with a creative way to decorate a pumpkin. The families met that challenge and the result was a colorful and unique patch of pumpkins that are on display in the lobby at the school.

"I think the parents have gone over and beyond our expectations. Many of them were inspired by whatever their child liked and decorated their pumpkin to match that," Price said. "We had good participation and involvement for this."

Pumpkin creations included Miss Piggy, Charlie Brown, Pokemon, The Incredible Hulk, a Clemson cheerleader and a variety of others. Some were spooky and some were welcoming.

"It's good to involve the parents in their education. This way they can show their creative side. Never did I dream that their creativity would blossom like this," Price said. "The really exciting part about it is the other kids in the school love it. They come by and look at them and say they want to do their pumpkins like these."
