This year we had great fun. For Kf, we cut the top off the pumpkin and carved doors and windows in the side. Then, we sunk a glass container down into the pumpkin and filled it with water and a live goldfish. The kids at school went CRAZY for it. In fact, they had to remove the pumpkin because too many of the little kids were trying to touch the fish. Here is a pic of her creation.
I am embarrassed to say that we never even carved our big pumpkins. I guess we used all our creative juices on these little guys!
