I may have gone overboard on the pumpkin buying. We currently have about ten pumpkins – ranging from giant ones to teeny tiny one. It’s lucky we love pumpkin soup!

Pumpkin tea set

Decorating the pumpkin is a pretty serious business. Our road isn’t very big on Halloween so I’m not competitive – it’s just so much fun! Last year we made a pumpkin tea set and this year we have had a practice go at a spooky spider pumpkin which I was quite pleased with. I still fancy making a pumpkin Cinderella carriage – the ultimate pumpkin shape!

Perfectly Pumpkin contest


So as you can tell I am pumpkin mad! Which is why I jumped at the chance of co-hosting The Perfectly Pumpkin Contest! A contest for all pumpkin themes kids activities.

At the weekend I posted some features from The Sunday Showcase with lots of different pumpkin ideas – so check those out to get some inspiration and some ideas for what else to do with the kids about pumpkins!
