Pumpkin carving might be our favorite Halloween pastime, but it’s one we know is dangerous for little fingers. Though we don’t recommend having your child wield a sharp knife, they can still participate in the carving process! Have them help out by:
Sketching a "scary," "silly," or "spooky" look for your jack-o-lantern on a piece of paper
Making a template of their sketch and let them use safety scissors to cut it out
Stick the template to the pumpkin and have them outline the shapes with a marker
Let your little ones help scoop out the insides — and don’t forget to save the pumpkin seeds to roast in a pan and eat later for a fun and healthy snack!
