Last weekend saw the return of Pumpkinfest to Castle Ward. It’s an annual event which sees children (and big children) create their own personalised pumpkins to take home.
This year saw the introduction of cartoon pumpkins as well as the usual carved fare. My girls decided to go for this option instead of the carved one as last years pumpkins only lasted about a week before it had to visit the pumpkin patch in the sky (bin).
We waited patiently for the event to open.
Look at us – 1st in the queue!
For the cartoon pumpkins the girls chose what features they would like, eyes and mouths. These were then coloured in, cut out and then stuck onto the pumpkins.
Here are the finished pumpkins.
I think the girls did rather well, even though we had to restick the features with PVA glue when we got home.
Have a great week.
