If somebody asked you what the most popular Halloween decorations are, you would probably include pumpkins near the top of the list! A carved pumpkin with a candle flickering inside is the quintessential Halloween accessory. Halloween might be a little different this year but we believe you should still dig out your costumes and celebrate indoors with your family. 

Pumpkin carving is a FANTASTIC family activity. Stock up on pumpkins and have a family competition to see who can create the best Halloween design! Here are some pumpkin carving ideas...


BUT, a pumpkin is for life... and not just for Halloween!

- There are over 50 different types of pumpkin.
