Pears in Space!

Pears in SpaceEvery 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 has a whole section with DIY pear decor.  How do you incorporate pears into your craft ideas?

About Lynsey

I work with USA Pear marketing offices that work in 38 countries all over the world: from Latin America to the Middle East, from Europe to Southeast Asia and places in between, our representatives serve markets on every continent except Antarctica. I love the opportunity to practice my Spanish and pick up new phrases in other languages (even if it’s just the basics of “hello,” “goodbye,” “thank you” and of course “pear”: pera, birne, гру́ша [GROO-sha], and more to come). I’ll be sharing highlights of the exciting and interesting activities that are taking place to promote USA Pears around the world. My favorite pear variety is Comice. Yum!

  1. 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.
