Baskets full of Potatoes on the ground with this title: "A Harvest
of Playing, Practicing, Preparing, Participating Produces a Perfect
Performance." Playing, Practicing, Preparing and Participating are
spelled with lettered potatoes. Decorate with leaves and pumpkins, etc
Variations: You could have a class create the background for your board with
potato stampers. Just take a potato and carve it so that it can be dipped in
paint and then stamped on a piece of paper and leave the appropriate design.
(You can use plastic knives or do some of the cutting at home yourself.)
Another decorating idea would be to use burlap as a backing. I've also seen
(from yeeeears of VBS) a handful of pillow stuffing or cotton balls inside the
foot of a pair of panty hose or knee highs. This looks like little potatoes.
