Carve a pumpkin competition - Winner

Posted on: 26 October 2012 by Gareth Hargreaves

Congratulation Liz Corbin, you are the winner of this year's Halloween pumpkin competition.

Grim ReaperWell done to everyone entered this year's competition. The nimble fingered craft queen who is the victor is Liz Corbin from Reading.

Making vegetable lanterns is great fun to do with the grandchildren. They will enjoy picking the perfect pumpkin, scooping out the messy orange inside and coming up with a design. Obviously younger ones will need your help with sharp carving implements, or they could decorate a face with markers, paint or glitter glue instead.

Afterwards you could toast the seeds and cook soup or pumpkin pie with the innards.

An autumn tradition, pumpkin carving is certainly a heathier Halloween activity than going trick or treating for sweets. Although classic Jack O' Lanterns are fun for older children, your pumpkin doesn't even have to be Halloween themed. You could carve a harvest design, or a cartoon character if you're feeling artistically ambitious.

It doesn't have to be a pumpkin, either - you could carve a turnip, swede or squash.

Thanks once again to all who entered, you can see a gallery of  lanterns here: Carve a halloween pumpkin competition in Groups.
