Look! I actually did something crafty with my kids!

Okay, so this might not be a big deal to other moms who are at wizard-level craftiness. But it’s a big deal to me. I have never carved a pumpkin. I wanted to carve a pumpkin with my kiddos. Memories and stuff. I thought maybe you would like to know how to do this “craft” too.

Tools you will need:

Trashbags to protect the table. We’re classy like that.

And apparently a spatula. Don’t ask why. According to my three-year-old it is necessary.

Kids who are somewhat interested in what you’re doing. Helloooooo in there . . .

A black marker. No artistic ability necessary (OBVIOUSLY). And don’t forget the bib for when the pumpkin spits up. That was Landon’s genius idea.

A kid to do the dirty work for you. What? I didn’t want to get pumpkin guts on my camera!

Oh, it looks like you actually need TWO spatulas. Very important if you have two little helpers. Otherwise the fight of the century will ensue.

And in order to get to this point you also need a knife, which happens after the helpers realize that they are bored with this dumb project.


Happy Halloween!

    I’m a little behind on blog reading! oops. Cute post though. I’ve never caved a pumpkin either. Nathan has done it. But now we just paint ours.
    Love the bib idea, Landon. oh and the “wizard level craftiness” line made me laugh. I have too many friends like that and it’s very intimidating.
