We finally picked out our pumpkins this weekend & the kids had definite ideas of what they wanted to carve. My daughter went with a traditional pumpkin face, but my boy who always has to do something different wanted to carve one of the skylanders swap force characters. He did a sketch & I translated it into a doable jack o' lantern pattern.

Here is Wash Buckler!  Smiley


My boy had fun doing the messy job...cleaning out the pumpkin. We're saving the seeds for toasting & some for planting next year.

I drew the pattern on the pumpkin in sharpie marker.

Detail of pattern...

Once the face was carved, I cleaned off the sharpie marker with a paper towel soaked in bleach...it rubs the black marker right off. 

We put a little battery powered lantern light inside to really make it glow since it was such a large pumpkin... 37 lbs!

This is what we used as reference for the skylanders swap force character.

This was my babygirl's more traditional design. Wink


Happy Halloween!

Wow! I hit the rocks button! What wonderful creations! I love the focused looks on the kid's faces. They are really into their projects! And a great job with the outlines for the carving details. I love to hear of crafters who share with their kids. It takes longer, but it is well worth the effort. Now wait 'til you have to teach them how to drive  Grin
