Ah, Halloween. Aside from Christmas, it’s probably your child’s favorite holiday. Think about it. For a day, your son can pretend he’s Batman, or your daughter can be the real-life embodiment of Queen Elsa. Halloween is all about the children, and it’s your job to make sure your child enjoys an awesome day of fun and candy. Heck, it’s even your job to do your best to impress other people’s children with your impressive and unique candy selection, as well as your decorations, which can make or break your neighborhood reputation. The first step in creating an impressive Halloween decoration display?
Carving the pumpkin.
Sure the cobwebs, scarecrows and giant spiders can take a B display to an A, but with all things in life, you need to start with the basics. And if you miss on the pumpkin, well then your Halloween decorations have lost all credibility. No adorable trick-or-treater will ever come to your house again.
OK, we’re kidding. But you can’t discount how important the carved pumpkin is, and how children and parents alike appreciate a finely carved pumpkin.
That being said, here’s the best way to carve the pumpkin of your dreams. Using our kid-friendly methods, you and your child can have the pumpkin-carving experience that will make all of the neighbors jealous.
In the end, it doesn’t matter if you’re a Picasso carving the pumpkin. It’s creating family fun and traditions that counts.
