Last weekend we went to the pumpkin patch for Madeleine to pick out her very first pumpkin. On the list for today was to carve said pumpkin and play with the pumpkin guts. 😀
I started out by drawing the face on Mr (or Miss?) Pumpkin before getting to work cutting the top off the pumpkin. The goal was to recreate a cute little Madeleine face in pumpkin form. See the baby teeth??
Once I had a sufficient amount of pumpkin guts taken out of the pumpkin, I set an anxious baby in front of the pile. She was quite interested in what I’d been doing.
She was completely unsure what to do with the pumpkin guts at first. I thought she’d go to town, but she was baffled by them and really preferred to explore the pumpkin instead.
After play-time was over, it was off to the bath to wash all of the pumpkin guts off of her. 🙂 She finally got into playing with the goo towards the end, but definitely took a while to warm up to the idea.
We hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!!
