Out of my Gourd!
Gourds: Anybody worked with them? Have ideas?
I bought some sample gourds, already cleaned and dried. The Egg gourds are a good size and price (far right). The Jewelery are tiny. The Banana's shape could lend to some interesting projects. Ordered 1 Purple Martin for fun, many people use this type to make bird houses. Want to use gourds with K-5 students. I don't really want to drill and cut into them since that's a lot of prep so I guess that crosses off rattles. Ideas are dolls, ornaments, and sculptures (picturing fruit, eggs, etc.). Any suggestions guys?
