Hallowe'en Pumpkins

In preparation for Halloween tomorrow, why not create a pumpkin lantern with the kids? Carving pumpkins is a messy and fun way to spend the afternoon, and is a great decoration for any parties you might be throwing for Halloween over the half term. I popped together a few simple instructions and pictures of how we made ours: 1) Cut the top off their pumpkins with a sharp knife (you should probably do this bit to avoid any injuries – fake blood is perfect for Halloween real blood is not!) 2) Be prepared for the smell, we didn’t realise it...
