DIY Giant Pumpkin Photo Bulletin Board Puzzle
Fun classroom activity
The puzzle fit together very well. I put the puzzle together at home an numbered each piece as well as marked the top of each piece. Each student colored their puzzle piece then we worked together to make a pumpkin. The puzzle is white so we used a lot of orange markers and crayons but it was fun.
The pumpkin is a great bulletin board in my classroom.

This is sooooo cute but the pieces did not fit together very well so I ended up with gaps that allowed the background to show through. Just didn't look as polished as I would have liked.

Could be better
I got this item for a classroom Halloween party and while it is a really cute idea... it's poorly executed. The puzzle pieces are very thin, almost like poster board. When I think of puzzles, I think of thick cardboard. Otherwise, it seems cute.

It should come pre painted orange. It was hard to color on due to the waxy film. I ended up spray painting lightly and that seemed to work.

Put the puzzle together before hand and mark the reverse side of each piece. This will prevent someone from decorating the wrong side of their puzzle piece. It was hard to tell the front from the back when the pieces were white.

great family school project
This has been an all school project now for 3 years and has been an excellent experience for our families and us as teachers. They decorate their puzzle piece with whatever they want and then we put their picture in it and have a display for all to see. We now are a large enough preschool we use 2 pumpkins and everyone enjoys it for the month that it is up. We have also started using your turkey in a simular fashion.

I ordered another giant pumpkin for this fall because it was a wonderful bulletin board display last year. The students first painted their pieces orange, and using a digital camera, I took pictures of the children and their "specials" teachers and had this in our pumpkin. Everyone loved it!
