My husband Dave and I have always been into creating masterpieces on Halloween, ever since our first together! We usually do 4-6 carvings between the 2 of us and have had many different themes throughout the years. We have done kids themes- even before we had kids. These included Spongebob Squarepants, and Sesame street. Other themes we have done is plain old scarey Halloween (witches, cats, ghosts, etc) and star wars!

Spooky Halloween at the Potvins, 2008



Loved these ones!

This year we got a pumpkin early from our local minor hockey team so Dave and I decided to carve it “with the kids”! I found the Swiper template on, which had a ton of other tv caracters including Dora and Diego. It’s written on the wall is another site I found for lots of free printable templates! Happy Carving!!

What are you carving into your Pumpkin this weekend?

    Wow, very creative and awesome carvings Nina! We are doing ours tomorrow, but this year the kids are designing their own and then I will help with the actual carving. I'm thinking that the finished products should be very interesting ;-)

      I can't wait Heidi for our kids to be old enough to make their own creative carvings! So much fun!
