Pumpkin Carving Enrichment

Last night for enrichment we carved pumpkins! When we were at St.George someone had a Better Home and Garden magazine that had the cutest idea's....



so I set out on a mission to find a "corer" to do this polka dot pumpkin carving! And mine was fine until...the polka dots started falling INTO the pumpkin! So probably this weekend I'll gut the pumpkin and save the polka dots and find a way to attach them so they don't fall in again. I was waiting to gut it until closer to Halloween. But I had fun doing it anyway! Maybe I'll still buy a white pumpkin and try that! Well, here's my attempt at copying Better Homes and Gardens!





Oh and I made a good dessert for the activity...I've only been waiting a YEAR to make it so I'm glad it turned out!

PS, I'm on fall break from school, that's why I'm actually posting lately! It's so nice! Sorry Shad, no fall break for you! It's kind of giving me a taste of what life will be like in January....(I hope I'm more productive than this!)

The dessert was yummy and your pumpkin looks great. My favorite part was watching you make those holes. Enrichment is the best!

I am dying to know how you a)made perfect circles and b)filled them with things exactly their same perfect size. I have studied your pics (probably longer than is considered normal) and I cant figure it out. I was excited to see a new post but I really came to your site to tell you to hurry up and have this baby of yours! :) Im dying to see him too!!

I was wondering the same thing as Shannon. I understand you used a "corer" to make the holes, but what did you put in them? Also, you can't tell us you made this really good dessert and then not tell us WHAT it is? I lost sleep over it last night! :) Glad you've had a nice fall break to relax!!

Hey, that is really cute. I wish I had made it to Enrichment now, it sounds like I really missed out!

So cute! I may try it. Good luck with the baby.

How creative. I shouldn't be surprised! I am totally going to try it. Infact that's what we'll do tomorrow night for our family activity. So any good books or TV shows to recommend?!!? I always love your recommendations.
