Gourds for Kids Stuck at Home

Let’s Take POSITIVE Action to Help With the Corona Virus Interruptions!

Welburn Gourd Farm is donating FREE Gourds to school children who are required to stay home from school as a fun craft tool.

You can help by posting a fun kid's gourd project in our Facebook Group, “For the Love of Gourds,” and/or by ordering a FREE Gourd box for kids in need.

The gourds are free, but there is a cost for shipping, so becoming a sponsor by ordering a Gourd Box and paying for shipping is a way you can help out.

Shown above, Kid's Box of Mixed Shape Gourds, 3"- 7.9" in diameter (distance straight across at the widest point of the gourd).

We love what these young artist did with their free "Gourds for Kids" box! For those not familiar with gourd shapes, the horses shown on the left were made using our "Canteen Gourd" shape, which has been turned on its side.

Here's the note we received with the photo: "These 3 kids had a great and creative time with the free gourds provided by Welburn. Kept them busy for many hours! Thank you so much!" - Susie Reimer

Becky Grant-Burns created these colorful “hot air balloons” with gourds and gave us permission to post them as a fun project or kids to make from Bottle-shaped gourds. Thank you, Becky! [Please note: We recommend any cutting and cleaning of gourds be done by an adult, and always use a dust mask or respirator when cutting and cleaning gourds.]
