Carving pumpkins can be really fun. They are much softer than wood and you can play with the faces. They don't have to be isometrical and nothing has to match. I don't carve all the way throught the pumpkin and after I'm done I spray it with and acrylic clear spray. This way it will last for a couple of weeks, or longer if the weather is cool. Try carving pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes, or any other similar vegetable and have fun. It's a great family activity.

Oh I never thought of carving a sweet potato! I love to eat them.

And when you're done you spray it with acrylic clear spray. Huh. What a great tip!

I love your pumpkin. Great work for a Santa Carver.
