Carving Your Pumpkin

Kids, make sure an adult is helping you with this activity.

To carve your pumpkin, use a pumpkin carving kit from your local grocery store or use common household tools such as a spoon, serrated knife, pin or nail, or paring knife.

  1. After you have removed the seeds from your pumpkin, follow these three easy steps:
  2. Tape the stencil to your pumpkin.
  3. Using a nail, needle or toothpick, punch holes following the lines of the stencil. Remove the stencil when finished.
  4. Have an adult help you cut along the dotted lines you have made with the pin, nail or toothpick.
