Sugarplum Fairy chose her pumpkin several weeks ago and drew a beautiful butterfly on it with markers and has had it decorating the house since.
Friday, was "carve the butterfly out" day.
She finds the removal of pumpkin innards slightly gross.
I decided to take the drill to my pumpkin...kinda gross, too.....
We then stuffed a clear marble in the hole...we also discovered that if one pushes a marble in too far, 7 year old fingers get stuck in the hole while trying to push said marble back out...
I adore the effect, though...and we didn't lose any fingers in the process.
These guys have nothing to do with pumpkins, but they make me smile. I have some in the olive tree and some hanging from my porch light.
I can hardly believe it is the end of October already!
