Every so often I come across something really awesome and fun in the USA Pear archives. This time, it was “Peras USA en el Espacio” – “USA Pears in Space!” The idea is a little kooky, but I immediately fell in love with this book that was a giveaway for kids in Panama, Colombia, and Venezuela back in 2000. Inside I found paper doll-style pears and everything needed to build my own spaceship. It was a great way to get kids in South America familiar with the different varieties of USA Pears. I couldn’t resist – I got out my scissors and glue stick, and put together the spaceship full of little astronaut pears.
Now, this activity didn’t really require a lot of creativity on my part, but there was some craftiness involved. A couple of weeks ago Brittany shared lovely homemade pear gift wrap, and usapears.org has a whole section with DIY pear decor. How do you incorporate pears into your craft ideas?
The cut outs are such a great idea and I enjoyed the photographs. I wouldn’t mind a book of my own so I could create my own pear ship filled with little astronaut pears.
