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 and a knitting project. 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!
