1. Buy a pumpkin with a nice side to carve a face into and cut it's head off
2. Scoop out it's guts and discard, leave about an inch thick on it's face side!
4. Put a candle inside and it's head back on and you have a carved pumpkin!
Issie and I had great fun today. She was ace and worked hard at gutting her pumpkin and then giving it a scary face
Even Gary wanted in on the act after eating some of Issie's dropped pumpkin seeds...
Within an hour we had two super cute Pumpkins ready to be lit Saturday night. Issie was very proud of herself, she gutted it on her own and drawn the face, I just helped her with the cutting.
Warning though, Pumpkin gutting will exhaust your child...don't do on Halloween itself as they will sleep through it!
