Trick Or Treat

After getting lots of candy, carving a pumpkin is definitely the funnest part of Halloween. This year our pumpkin is pretty simple, we just carved the phrase “Trick or Treat?” into the pumpkin.

To make the pattern used to cut the words from, we printed out the words on a sheet of 8.5″ X 11″ paper (you can pick the font and size to suit your own tastes). Then we taped the words to the pumpkin.

To give us an outline on the pumpkin to cut from we poked holes through the paper to leave a pattern that we could cut along. After we poke the hole, we use a little saw and a knife to cut the letters out.

After all the letters are cut we clean out the inside of the pumpkin, saving the seeds for roasting, then we put a light inside the pumpkin and watch it glow!
