H wanted to try carving so I had her draw her design/face with a marker. We used a washable marker. H is a perfectionist when it comes to her artwork, so if she messed up she could easily wipe it away and re-draw.
H's reaction: "This is disgusting", but happily helped me get the seeds out.
I assisted H at first but once she got the hang of it she was carving away.
I got this Mini Pumpkin Push-Ins kit (Mr. Potato Head) on clearance last year. You probably could just use the pieces from the toy if you have some.
How did you make your jack-o-lanterns? Do you carve? paint? stickers? kits?
Any tips on how to keep a carved pumpkin last longer?
