I hope I am not jumping the gun on Halloween. It will be here before we know it! Every year I end up buying those Halloween pumpkin carving patterns and carving the pumpkins for my kids. I’ve discovered two things – these patterns are free online and there are many, creative mess-free ways that the kids can decorate their own pumpkins without carving!
