Fall Fun: Pumpkin carving

First you picked your pumpkin, now it's time to make an awesome jack-o'-lantern!



In today's Fall Fun, we bring you some tips on how to carve your pumpkins. 



According to an expert, you want to pick a pumpkin that has some character in the front. You should also consider buying a carving tool kit, or a serrated saw.



Open the top, and scoop all the seeds and guts out. Beginners should consider printing their patterns and draw them on the pumpkin before carving. 



To light it up, use a candle or, if you're feeling crafty, use a string of holiday lights!
