Last year we didn’t really get involved in carving the pumpkins too much with Noah, Isla was a dot and would not have understood what was going on, but this year it was a different story. I am very looking forward to our next Halloween because I will make sure that our pumpkins are carved perfectly with some great characters on them. Noah and Isla would love that.
We did the basic pumpkin designs on our orange balls of fun, I love Halloween and I just love autumn, doing things like this is right up our street. Daddy chopped the lids off the pumpkins and the little ones got busy scooping it all out so it was nice and clean for the candles. Noah gave me clear instructions to make the pumpkins face as scary as possible, with teeth showing in the mouth, so that is where his face design came from. Isla said to Daddy to make hers scary too, but Daddy steered her in the direction of what design to choose. They loved getting involved, it was great to see them scooping them out with such concentration on their faces too. They loved getting involved.
Some fantastic pumpkin designs
I have seen some fabulous pumpkin designs on Twitter recently from bloggers that I follow, my favourite being Jenny’s Olaf and Doc McStuffin with a fantastic tutorial. What a fab idea! Hollybobb’s turned their pumpkins into a pumpkin snowman, which I thought was really cute. Redhead Babyled created a brilliant Mickey Mouse with a little guide on how they did it. I loved Gingerlillytea and The Natural Momma’s posts on their pumpkin carving adventures too. I had a look on Pinterest too and came up with some great pins for pinspiration for 2015:
