NOTE: This is part two of a two part series, read about carving on real pumpkins here.
Although I love the look and feel of real pumpkins around my house in the fall, I also love the fact that craft pumpkins will last longer than one season! This is especially true if I am taking the time to carve a pumpkin with a really intricate design. My 10 year old daughter, Korey, loved the idea of keeping her carved pumpkin for several seasons so she carved a Funkins Craft pumpkin.
The Sulky Stick ‘n Carve and the Zombie Pumpkins Carving tool made carving the Funkin a breeze! Korey was able to cut out even the small detailed spots with ease.
I did help her by holding the Funkin steady since it is so much lighter than a real pumpkin.
Korey did a great job and was so proud to be able to do the whole pumpkin carving by herself.
We rinsed the pumpkin in the sink to wash away the Sulky Stick ‘n Carve and the end result is perfect.
We are going to be able to enjoy this cute Halloween kitty for many years to come.
If you are looking for a fun and easy family activity this season, here is my recommendation. Buy a pack of Sulky Stick ‘n Carve, buy the Zombie Pumpkins Professional Pumpkin Carving Tool Set, and buy some Funkins. You will have a blast picking out designs to carve (Here are some free designs) and you will have a spectacularly spooky house for Halloween.
