Every fall we head to a pumpkin patch farm and let the kids pick out their own pumpkin to make into a jack-o-lantern. This is one of our favorite family activities and these jack o lantern pumpkins are always a fun reminder of fall.
We have our own family contest to see who can find the biggest pumpkin to carry home. The rule is they have to be able to carry the pumpkin by themselves. Sometimes they go with a shape they like instead of finding the biggest one. Either way, it is just as much fun going to the patch and finding the perfect pumpkin as it is taking them home and decorating them.
