Is Pumpkin Carving Part of Your Family Tradition?

Will You Do Pumpkin Carving With Your Kiddos?

Whether the faces are spooky and scary or goofy and giddy, children love to carve out their pumpkins for the Halloween season. Everyone benefits from the fun family time, some even make it a team event. Decorating tools and and creative stencils have allowed wee ones to go wild with the gourds while some keep it simple with a knife and spoon. And while the cut-out mugs may be the end goal, many mamas don't mind the innards that can make for delish pumpkin bread and toasted pumpkin seeds.

Does your family crave carving time? Join our The Mommy Club over in our LilSugar community and share your carving tips! Here's a detailed guide to posting questions or posts to groups if you are new to the PopSugar Community.

I hate carving pumpkins, so messy and tough. We paint them or I found things (like Mr. Potato head parts) that you just stick in.

My son is only 2 & 1/2, so I won't hand him a knife, but he did paint the pumpkin he picked out, and I'll let him watch me carve the bigger one for the jack-o-lantern and stick his hands in the guts, if he wants to! :)

YES! We love holidays, and pumpkin carving, and cooking the seeds, is one of the most fun parts. It's extra fun and amusing for us because everyone likes to rehash my kindergarten experience of pumpkin carving. The teacher chose me to pull the pulp out of the pumpkin and being the serious and determined kid I was, I continued to pull it out even though the texture was gagging the crap out of me.. lol. She tried to make me stop, but i hated leaving anything unfinished.
