Congratulations to Childminding Ireland member Ruth Boal who won first prize for her pumpkin ‘Owliween’ at the annual Pumpkin Decoration competition run in the Botanic Gardens at Halloween. Ruth and her mindee group who made pumpkin ‘Owliween’ were delighted to get this recognition.
Ruth explains that they ‘used all natural materials, connected with autumn and had great fun with metallic paint. The competition specifies that the pumpkins may not be carved so we had to work out together how best to attach everything.’
All entries to the competition are currently on display at the National Botanic Gardens, click here for more details.
