Peter Peter pumpkin eater!

My mom bought Aaron a Halloween pumpkin and a pumpkin carving set from Woolies yesterday and today Aaron and I set about making our very own Jack-o-Lantern.

Thanks Nana


Pumpkin guts are slimy and gross! Also, its easier to grab them in your hand than to use the scoop 🙂


Design taped to the pumpkin and ‘traced’ on


Careful, the saw is sharp, ask an adult to help you!


Eye see you


All carved up


Aaron could not wait for night to fall so we could light the candle




Oh, take a look over here to see what we did with the seeds 🙂

Homemade fresh roasted pumpkin seeds

Today Aaron and I carved our very first halloween pumpkin.  There were a ton of seeds and instead of throwing them away, I roasted them.

Fresh pumpkin guts


  • Pumpkin seeds (or any squash seeds)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


  • Preheat your oven to 140ºC and line a baking tray with tin foil
  • Rinse off any pulp or strings from your seeds
  • Pat dry with a cloth and place seeds in a bowl
  • Pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil over the seeds and sprinkle with as much salt as you like
  • Spread the seeds on the baking tray in an even layer
  • Roast seeds for about 15 – 20 minutes or until they start to pop
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!
