Have fun this month gathering your home’s October decorations – including a trip to a Pumpkin patch near you!
How to carve a pumpkin
1. Choose a large pumpkin and use a sharp serrated knife to cut off the crown.
2. Using a large serving spoon, scoop out the seeds and fibres and discard. Then remove some of the flesh.
3. With a marker pen, draw a simple outline of a face on the pumpkin. Use a small serrated knife to cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. Always cut away from you in case the knife slips.
4. Pop a small candle or a safer tea light inside the pumpkin, light it and replace the crown.
