ALBANY, GA (WALB) --  It wouldn't be Halloween with a jack-o-lantern.

Lee County students used a recycling lesson to make an entire field of Halloween pumpkins. The Lee County Primary media center was full of jack-o-lanterns made from recycled materials. Students had their choice of how they wanted to design the pumpkins and had a helping hand from their parents. Students who designed the top two pumpkins explained what they used and why it's important to recycle.

"A bleach jar, tin foil, a paper plate, and plastic forks," said David Carter, a Lee County Primary Student.

"It means to make things brand news so that you can keep on using it and not make the world a big mess," said Zac Milhalko, a Lee County Primary Student.

Parent volunteers also dressed as witches, Princess Fiona, and other characters to read to students as part of the Halloween celebration.
