I had originally planned to do a floral design but my patience (and the size of the pumpkin) meant I went for something more stylized. I used an apple corer to make the big holes and a kebab stick to do the smaller ones. It was great for talking about shapes (circles) with 'The Fairy'.
Cutting (thanks Papa!)
Scooping (perfect job for small hands)
The finished lantern. 'The Frog' was fascinated by the light and kept pointing at it. It would make a great centre piece for a harvest festival or bonfire party. Please remember not to leave any naked flames unattended as they pose a fire risk.
Now we have a cupful of pumpkin seeds to do something with.... what do you do with pumpkin seeds?
