Hello there! I'm Kathleen, a former art teacher and co-creator of two young boys. I'm perpetually in search of creative ways to spice up our daily lives, and always in search of a good cup of coffee. Join us in our adventures in making and doing, and making do.
What to do when your pumpkin has become deflated and rotten?
Well, you get your favorite 2 year old, put on some rain boots and play smash the pumpkin.
Yeah, I let my kid do risky things like jump off a table onto a pumpkin, mostly because I believe that risky things (within reason) are good for boys. And they often don't get to do such stuff nowadays. (don't worry, we were standing right there).
A chunk of wood is always great fun to use for smashing too.
We all laughed for quite a while, watching this pumpkin become mush, or as Soren would call it, pumpkin guts or spaghetti (the stringy insides reminded him of that).
If you're lucky enough to have a yard, your kids would love destroying something like a pumpkin or even some rotten fruit. Plus it's free fun!
