Red Ribbon Week Doors & Character Pumpkins!

This is our Red Ribbon Week, and we have some serious contenders for Best Decorated Door:

"Don't Be Afraid To Say No!"  The background really makes this door - but the cheesecloth ghosts are super cute too!

"Drugs Are a Trick Not A Treat" These candy corn are super simple and cute - just crumpled tissue paper!

"Elect Not To Do Drugs!" This Election themed door is particularly appropriate this year!

 "Tell Drugs Its The End Of The Road" This is a fun one for a car-crazy class!

 "You Only Live Once, Fly Above The Influence" These paper towel roll rockets were a blast for the students to decorate!
 "Mooooove Over Drugs" These paper plate cows come from our Pre-k class - they did an awesome job!

 "Don't Get Wrapped Up In Drugs" This mummy door is from our Counselor - love it!

"Slam Dunk, Drugs Are Junk!" I love the over-the-door hoop for this door, and the basketballs are Styrofoam balls cut in half and painted orange!

"Drugs Are Sticky Business!" This is a 2nd grade door with glitter spiderwebs - love the unsuspecting victim all tangled up by the spider in the top left corner!

"There's No Room On Our Broom For Drugs!" These brooms are made with sticks from the playground and paper bags! 

And, of course I saved the best for last! My class is full of Pokemon Masters, so of course we had to do a Pokemon themed door:
 "Drugs Can't Catch Us! We Are Having A Ball Being Drug Free!" 

We created the Poke-balls with 2 paper plates. We cut the first one in half and painted one half red. Then we added a long, skinny black rectangle, and cut out 3 different sizes of circles. We used a brad to secure the two halves to the 2nd plate. I had each child color their own Pikachu mask (from this site), and then took their photo as they showed me their best "Pokemon escaping" pose. I printed the pictures on card stock and cut them out. Then the kids glued their picture in the opening of the Poke-ball, so it looks like they're jumping out of the Poke-ball!
 The winners will be announced Friday, so we're crossing our fingers!

I also had some great Pumpkin Character book reports turned in! Here are some of my faves: 
Pete The Cat Character Pumpkin made with paint, paper and pipe cleaners!

This family went all out with their "The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear" pumpkin - when my sweetie brought it in, she showed me the exact page that this scene is from!

This Curious George pumpkin is so cute!

I love this Cookie Monster pumpkin - especially since he came with a chocolate chip cookie!

Alright, I'm off to enter grades into our computer program - Progress Reports get printed Friday! I'd love to hear about your Red Ribbon Week - rustle up a comment below and share your favorite door display or character pumpkin!
