Pumpkin carving is not my expertise so I was very nervous when my toddler requested to carve pumpkins this year. Last year I dodged the bullet and we decorated them instead. Plenty of paint, markers, glitter etc. was readily available. This year, I decided to step up my game, venture out of my comfort zone and actually carve out pumpkins. After a little YouTube research, a little bit of muscle and a lot of patience, we managed to attempt Mickey Mouse and the traditional pumpkin face (three triangles and a mouth). I am not saying we were super successful but we had a lot of “icky” fun claims the little one (she wasn’t the biggest fan of taking out the seeds) and we got it done!
