Pumpkin Care and Carving Tips:
- When selecting a pumpkin, choose one that is ripe, and has no bruises, cuts or nicks.
- Remember: Don’t carry a pumpkin by its stem; it may break. Don’t bruise the pumpkin or it will not last as long.
- Instead of cutting off the top of the pumpkin to remove the seeds try cutting off the bottom. This will allow the pumpkin to sit up straight and make removing the seeds easier.
- When cleaning out the pumpkin, use an old soup ladle to scoop out the seeds.
- Try carving a giant pumpkin. They are much easier to carve than regular pumpkins.
- Use bold simple features for the face.
- Use a marker to draw a face on your pumpkin before you carve it.
- Try carving a word into the mouth of the pumpkin, for example, carve the word ” BOO ” in the mouth of your pumpkin.
Remember: Knives are very sharp and dangerous. So make sure you have an adult help when carving your Jack O’ Lantern.
