Mr Mook and Lulu enjoys the challenge of carving a pumpkin, and has created some spectacular marvels over the years. This does, of course, set the bar rather high for anyone else in the pumpkin carving stakes – and does make the whole business look somewhat simpler than it is! Pumpkin carving is tricky – very tricky, and if you’re a novice, or have little hands and child-safe tools, it can all prove rather frustrating.
So, here’s an idea for little ones who don’t want to miss out on one of the few chances to play with their food – pumpkin decorating!
We picked up a few of these ‘Munchkins‘ from our local Waitrose, dug out some embellishments and Sharpies from the craft box, and set to work creating our own ‘gorgeous gourds’!
Here is Mook hard a work.
