NCS Students Make Holiday Crafts from Gourds

NCS Students Make Holiday Crafts from GourdsNCS teacher Mr. Lohr headed up a creative project idea with the students at NCS involving gourds.  Several students from his 4/5 class spent 4 recess periods in the classroom scrubbing 135 gourds to prepare them for this project.  Then Mr. Lohr drilled a hole in the top of each one and his students twisted metal hangers into each hole so the gourds could be hung up.  Finally, the gourds were ready for all of the students to decorate using their creativity and markers.  Mr. Lohr suggested that they make their gourd into a snow person or a bird house or they could use their originality and create their own idea.   Afterward, Mr. Lohr took the gourds home to shellac them before the students take them home the week before Winter Break.  Every student at NCS created one of these holiday crafts to take home.  Mr. Lohr’s students will plant more gourds in the school garden this spring in hopes of possibly making this a tradition.
