Fuzzy Jack-O-Lanterns

A couple of weeks ago we carved pumpkins. Don't say anything about it being too early. The timing was just right...meaning Tymon had a short break from school and was able to spearhead the project.

Carving the pumpkins is not super exciting for me...but eating the seeds are. So while they carve, I separate seeds from pulp and roast them up.

Graeden's smiley guy seems to be the best one in terms of no fuzz...Elliott and the neighbor decided to kick his apart (since it was soft and moldy anyway). Luckily tomorrow is trash day and these will definitely be in it.

3 Riveting COMMENTS:

  1. Bridget, I was wondering what they were using to carve the pumpkin? It created very clean lines.

  2. It's a kit that you buy in the store for $4.99 or something like that. It comes with patterns that you tape to the pumpkin. Then you poke holes every millimeter or so all the way along the lines. Next step is to take the pattern off and then use a little knife (also in the kit) to saw between the holes.

  3. I like the smiley pumpkin! I may need to copy the idea when we carve ours this weekend. :o)


Go ahead. Comment.
