    Pumpkin Carving

    Where summer always seems to have us running in a million directions, I love that fall pulls the family in close again. The coziness and the nesting when the cool weather comes is my favorite, and there are so many fun things to do with the kids this time of year!

    Pumpkin carving is a fan favorite in our house, but after a while, just doing the typical jack-o-lantern face year after year gets a little played out. I’m always on the hunt for new and clever pumpkin carving ideas that the kids can do on their pumpkins. My search this year did not disappoint! There are a ton of unique pumpkin carving ideas out there for all levels – simple basic designs for the littles, and more advanced templated for the bigger kids who want to be challenged a bit! Pumpkin carving is such a fun activity for the family that doesn’t require a lot of extra materials, which makes it fun for me, too!
