How would you carve your pumpkins?October 24, 2015
We were hoping to go pumpkin picking but it seems that everyone else had already had the same idea as our local pumpkin picking farm is suffering a shortage so we had to buy our pumpkins from the local vegetable market. We then printed off the four templates that the girls selected from those available on the Ladbrokes website. We had great fun trying to decide which ones to choose and I was really impressed to see a variety of difficulties available. This meant that the girls could choose designs that were simple enough for them to do themselves.
When deciding what to use to carve the pumpkins we bought a cheap pumpkin carving kit however we found it a lot easier to use spoons and knives from the kitchen (with supervision). The pumpkin carving kit was alright on the smallest pumpkin as it was quite soft but we needed to use one of our steak knives on the largest one which had a really thick skin.
