Carving Pumpkins


The tradition of making jack-o'-lanterns dates back centuries. You could probably use some new ideas and tips for pumpkin carving – such as using petroleum jelly to keep the cut-out eyes and mouth from drying out. Don't forget that it's best for adults or older kids to do the cutting and carving. Younger kids can help with designing and drawing on the face and spooning out the seeds.

Tapped out of ideas for your pumpkin's face? Our interactive Jack-O'-Lantern Creator can save the day!
