Pumpkin Night...

We did a few pumpkin activities as a family tonight that were really fun!
First, Papa carved a pumpkin.



While Papa got our design figured out, we read The Pumpkin Patch Parable. It was a book that we had already read before, but I think that our daughter got a lot out of this reading since she could see the steps of carving a pumpkin and see the slimy insides and seeds as we were reading.


Papa drew a cross on our pumpkin and then carved it.




While he drew and carved, our little girl colored her own paper version of the inspiration for our design.


Once it was craved, we put in a candle.



Voila!
