Pumpkin Carving With Pumpkin Masters

So many things about the month of October are incredibly exciting with young children at home.  Halloween holds the promise of treats, dressing up, and fun family time spent together.  Our family trips to the farm are always highly anticipated.  We recently drove to Long Island to celebrate all things fall and of course score some amazing pumpkins.  The kids applied some sort of bizarre system to their pumpkin selection process, and we spent a LONG TIME decided which ones would come home with us.

Our pumpkin carving was taken to a whole new level this year thanks to Pumpkin Masters!  I’ve frequently seen these inexpensive kits are our local grocery, drug and craft stores, but always stuck to an old-school knife.   We were sent a variety of Pumpkin Masters carving kits and strobe lights to test out, and they proved superior to our previous knife carving/candle lighting techniques (and much safer too!).  The kids were so eager to get involved and luckily Pumpkin Masters has a designated kit for kids.

We all liked using the scoopers to scoop out the pumpkin guts!

Decorating with Pumpkin Masters was fun and straightforward.  I used one of their patterns to trace a spider design onto a pumpkin, traced it with their tracing tool and applied the design with their surface carving tool.  We also marked circular and floral designs on pumpkins and punched them out with their designated tools.
