Bob is very good at carving pumpkins. I think he enjoys it, too!
First, buy a nice firm pumpkin. We got these from Walmart but we also like Shirks, Hy Vee and Longfellows as well. Use your pumpkin's shape to help inspire you how you wish to carve your pumpkin.
Clean out the insides of the pumpkin. Pull out all the stringy stuff and the seeds. Keep the seeds if you intend to roast them.
