Pumpkin carving is something I love doing every Autumn. If it happens to be the only thing I do for Halloween that year, then it’s been a good/successful Halloween.
I introduced my partner to the joys of it last year and promised him we’d make it a tradition of ours to carve pumpkins together each year.
I’ve carved a variety of things over the years.
Your go-to “spooky” faces. Tinkerbell. Phineas from Phineas and Ferb.
But my favourite one, and the one which took the longest – several hours! – Baby. The Winchester’s ’69 Chevrolet Impala.
She was a beauty and I was sad when we had to throw the pumpkin out. But the process was the most amount of fun I’ve ever had when it came to carving pumpkins.
Going into this post, I’m not certain what design I’ll be doing this year. But by the end of this post, you’ll be seeing what we decided to make!
I’m contemplating finding some uses for the pumpkin seeds. Maybe add them to smoothies with the chia seeds I use. Perhaps even try and save them to grow when I finally get my garden sorted.
Or forget about them like I usually would…
It’s a fun activity for us to do. Full of laughter and cheek. Let’s not forget a great family activity – although, presumably older kids.
What’s some Autumn/Fall traditions you have? Or try to do yearly?
Until next time,
