Click Clack Moo, Cows That Type Pumpkin


This weekend Charli and I made her storybook character pumpkin for the school contest. As we all know, Charli Beth loves all things farm so it was no surprise when she picked the cow. Her first decision was a horse but this non-crafty Mommy had to ax that idea. 

The title of the book she picked is, "Click, Clack Moo, Cows that type."


Honestly, I had not read the book. When we go to the library I usually let her pick out what she would like and then make sure it is in the right level for her. But she says its, "super funny."

We made the backdrop first and thought it would be meat to try to make the title look like keys from a typewriter. I laid out the letters with tape, and of course a lot of directions from Char. 



The cow is made out of paints and she did most of the painting with me outlining the spots. The ears are made from black and pink felt. The horns were very last night and were made from painted cardboard. 

We had a lot of fun making this project together. It was a challenge at times to see her ideas and for her to work hard but I always feel like tasks like these, help us grow as Mother and Daughter.

Judging will take place on Thursday with winners announced on Friday. Thankfully they do categories of k-3 then 4-6. Hopefully she will win a gift card to Barnes & Noble to get more books to challenge her reading skills.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
