Square Pegs and Round Holes

Remember my dissatisfaction at the perceived deficiencies I found with my parent of teen bible class? Well, I was delivered from that class into our new children's wing to work in the Art room with the first through fourth grade. Whether this calling is divine or merely circumstantial remains to be seen, but it is a joy and a challenge.

So here is my dilemma. I found the cutest craft. It is a stuffed pumpkin which is perfect for this time of year. But. The deal with these crafts is, they must apply (more or less) to the story they are teaching that week. Thus, the challenge. The Story this week is about King Solomon. So, pumpkin - King Solomon. How do I make the connection? It is making my feeble brain hurt. If only I had, what is it called....oh yes, some wisdom.

Here is a link to the craft site 'cause I know you are going to want one for your very own.
