Talk About CREATIVITY! A Halloween Post to Gather the Kids Around

October 28th, 2010

Some of the best things we love about this time of year is that the temperatures are cooling down, the leaves are changing color, and the Halloween festivities are underway. Kim and I don’t really love all the “gross and gory” kind of Halloween ideas out there, but one tradition that we love to keep each and every year is taking our families to The Pumpkin Walk.

Its remarkable beginning was conceived by a loving school teacher who hoped to find a better way to celebrate Halloween. We love the fact that it is such a positive and upbeat kind of atmosphere. It is family-friendly and people of all ages from come all over to enjoy. Literally hundreds of volunteers spend countless hours preparing the show each year…and at no charge.

For nearly 2 decades now, this gift has been enjoyed by thousands!

And talk about CREATIVITY! Check out some of the scenes from this year…all made with PUMPKINS and GOURDS! The theme was “The Magic of Animation!”

Lots of pictures, but I couldn’t choose my favorite…but here are some narrowed down! I think you should recognize a few! :) So gather up your little ones around the computer right now and enjoy seeing these scenes from some of your all-time favorite animated stories!


Of course, no Halloween is complete without Charlie Brown & The Great Pumpkin, right?


Here’s one that I absolutely loved. It’s probably because “Boo” always pulls at my heartstrings!

My kids’ personal favorite? Madagascar of course! “I say we move it, move it….”


Two of our most wonderful, creative friends – MarLyn and Sallie, put this next scene together. You know and love it – The Polar Express! Pretty amazing, right?



There was some Muppet action going on as well! Too, too cute!


And the beloved and timeless Dr. Seuss definitely needed to be included in this post! Can you name that story?


Seeing ol’ Mr. Cheshire Cat up in that tree giving us each a smile made our day!

Popeye reminded us to eat our spinach! Boy, that’s a classic, isn’t it?

And finally, there was “UP.” We all LOVED that movie. Bright, colorful, and so very sweet.


 (And yes, it is snow you are seeing in some of these photographs!)

We hope you enjoyed being able to take a look at these and be inspired by all the creativity out there!

We’d love to know….which one was YOUR favorite?

Happy Halloween!

    If I really had to choose one it would just have to be Madagascar, I love the monkeys cute, fun and addorable.
