What a Character!

Mia's teacher assigned the kids in her class the Pumpkin Project. The kids are supposed to pick a book that they've never read before, read it, and determine the main character. Then, design their pumpkin to resemble the character. Mia choose the book "Today I Feel Silly & Other Moods That Make My Day" by Jamie Lee Curtis (yes, the actress!).
We set to work last night with my paper, punches, and ribbon to work on her pumpkin. In this book, the character doesn't actually have a name because she refers to herself all the time. I've included photos of Mia & her pumpkin, a closeup of the pumpkin, a drawing of the main character from the book, and the back page of the book (which is a dial-a-face......Mia chose to do the silly face on her pumpkin).
