This weekend we had so much fun carving our pumpkins for Halloween.
Every year we take the kids to pick out one pumpkin each that they get to clean out themselves and then go online to pick out the faces they want me to carve
for them. It won't be to much longer
before I pass over the tool and let them carve their own pumpkins but for the time being I enjoy doing that part.
Pumpkin carving is so much simpler when you have a pumpkin carving kit.
This is what I purchased last year.
It's a neat little kit and it also comes
with stencils to use. I don't know if other
kits are build as durable as this one but
I was actually able to use it last year and
almost finished my project this year. I
will be buying a new set next season
because both my little carving tools not
only bent but the smallest ones blade
The kids choose to go online to find stencils for their pumpkins. There are many different free sites that can be used or if you want something with a lot of detail they have sites where you pay for the ability to print your stencil. Also you can just search "Pumpkin carving stencils or templates" on your favorite search engine and you'll find many more printables.
Here are some wonderful sites that have some sweet stencils.
