Classroom Jack-O-Lanterns

Here’s one of the pumpkins we carved for my class. One of my students drew the silhouetted cat using a black permanent marker.

I was really surprised to find out that we didn’t need a sharp knife to carve our pumpkins. We used a common butter knife and it worked perfectly, even for such a detailed pumpkin.

It gets a bit messy making Jack-o-lanterns in the classroom, but the kids really enjoy it. Some of them get quite creative with it as well.

This is the first one I’ve seen in a few years that wasn’t the typical face design. She did a great job on it!

I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween today!

  4. Hi Hilary,

    It certainly turned out better that I thought it would. I will have to think of what other silhouettes we can try for next year.
