You Know What’s Better Than a Pinterest Pumpkin Carving Template?

Last year we tried the Angry Birds pumpkin carving templates that you can find online.

I’ve thumbed through Pinterest looking for ideas to carve for the boys. Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Batman, whatever.

When asked last year in kindergarten how to build a castle for a group project, Zacharie piped up and said “well, first we need a blueprint!

I’ve seized on that planning attitude of his and whenever we have a project, from laying out a campsite to carving a pumpkin, I have him make a plan first.

So Zacharie drew what he wanted on his pumpkin. We had bought a kit that included triangle, square, and circle cut outs. He selected some square eyes, a triangle nose and then he wanted a big mouth.

I was having him describe how he wanted it done and then inspiration hit me – I just had my son draw on the pumpkin with crayons and I cut it out.
