you carve a smiling face pumpkin?
Lots of choices depending on how little or how
much time you want to allocate to this activity.
Optional pizzazz - add if you have patterned gift wrap, construction paper, scrapbooking paper or any other special paper. Way cool, but not vital to the project.
Leaf for your own prayer or message of thanks to God.
Make this an alternative to a halloween pumpkin! Influence the purpose and meaning towards the harvest and a glad heart.
