The kids love carving pumpkins. They each picked out their own pumpkin. Then, they draw the features on paper. We tape the features to the pumpkin and daddy helps with the carving.
Sophie loved getting all the seeds and goop out of the pumpkin, and played with it during the whole carving process.
Here's Jason's pumpkin with the features taped on.
