Digital Pumpkins


What could be more fun than letting your entire class carve pumpkins in your classroom??? How about letting your entire class carve pumpkins WITHOUT the mess??? Thought so! ;)

Check out these great 'digital' pumpkin carving websites that will let your students carve and/or decorate a pumkin safely (only virtual carving here) and without getting that sticky orange mess on their hands:

Ideas for Classroom Use:
  • Put it in a center at the student computers
  • Print out each student's pumpkin for a digital pumpkin patch outside your classroom
  • Make Geometric Jack-O-Lanterns by carving shapes into the pumpkin
  • Pull the activity into writing with a 'How to Carve a Pumpkin' prompt
