I love Halloween and I love jack-o-lanterns and roasting pumpkin seeds and all of it, but I do think the process is a little tedious, messy and potentially dangerous (I always feel like there is a close call with the carving knife, and I can’t even imagine what’s it’s like trying to supervise kids who want to participate in the carving). So I really love this idea for using cookie cutters instead of a knife. The result it beautiful and it is much safer and something kids can really take part in. I think the projections that the carvings make on the wall would be so magical for a child to look at! There is a full tutorial here on Modern Parents Messy Kids. Via Design Mom.
