Celebrate this year's Halloween creatively with your children. Use the time spent at home to make scary decorations and costumes.
The old Irish legend of the drunkard and the joker Jack, whom they don't want in heaven or hell, is tied to the lighted carved pumpkins, and they roam the world with a pumpkin with carbon inside. Initially, pieces of rusty coal really shone inside the pumpkins, later candles began to be placed in the pumpkins in a safe container.
All you need is a sharp spoon to carve out the flesh inside the pumpkin. The hole must be large enough (about 2/3 pumpkin), for easy digging out and later inserting the candle. Make the first cut around the stem of the pumpkin.
Thin and sharp, well-sharpened boning knives are best for cutting faces. There are also special saws and other tools for fine work, but a sharp knife is enough to create a face or a simple silhouette. With pumpkins you can imprint all sorts of faces, happy and scary, which you redraw on the pumpkin and then cut out. Finally, it remains to place the candle inside.
