Facebook over the weekend was chock full of pumpkin pictures. Here's the handiwork of our family. We opted to paint them this year instead of traditional style. It seemed like a LOT less work and I think the kids had more fun.
I know, I know, "but you don't get the seeds to roast". True. But if I really crave roasted pumpkin seeds I can stop by the gas station on the way home and grab a pack for like $2 bucks. Again, a lot less hassle.
Mine is the black one in the back. I tried this idea I saw on Pinterest where they glued crayons on the top and then melt them with a hairdryer. This did not work. The hairdryer just blew little melted pieces of crayon wax all over the place. A propane torch would have worked better... mine was out of gas. So I put the darn pumpkin in the oven with the broiler on for a few minutes. Whatever it takes, I guess.
Happy Halloween tomorrow. Be safe!
