Alice in Veggie-land

If you were to have been at SnakeMaster’s school on Friday, October 29th, you might have thought you’d fallen down the rabbit hole.

The 5th graders had just completed a Language Arts unit based on Alice in Wonderland, and the Harvest Day/Halloween celebration brought out all sorts of characters.

Click on the photos to embiggen and see the wonderful details these creative kids included!

Note the hookah. There were some pretty funny comments made by adults when out of earshot of children.

I wish I had taken a picture earlier in the day before this cat’s grin started to melt.

Bill the Lizard makes another appearance, times two.  The one on the left has a pepper for a tail. SM’s creation, on right, was modeled after his leopard gecko. Be kind about that tail. He created it, and he’s an innocent child.

The white rabbit began to yellow during the day, as the warmth of the room ripened the melon.

Hopefully Alice found her way home at the end of the day.

  1. Those are wonderful! I really like the Cheshire Cats, but, he’s my favourite from the story anyway 😉

  2. Hahaha! I love these, they’re marvellous 😀 Absolutely stuffed full of charm and personality. (Plus – vegetables? Yum!)

    What a creative bunch. Those various gourds and such are fantastic. They must have had a blast.

  6. Way cute. What a wonderful idea. I loved the first Chesire Cat & the Caterpillar with the hookah. That evil queen pumpkin is kind of scary.

  7. Ohhhhhh my gosh! These veggie creations are FABULOUS! Just gave me an idea for MORE art with Luz!!!
