ThinkGeek :: Blurgh! The ThinkGeek Blog - GREAT GEEKY PUMPKIN TEMPLATE CONTEST 2013

ThinkGeek :: Blurgh! The ThinkGeek Blog - GREAT GEEKY PUMPKIN TEMPLATE CONTEST 2013 | Children | Scoop.it

Perfect for indulging Dad's inner geek this Halloween, ThinkGeek has hundreds of really cool pumpkin carving templates for you to try out.

Janis Curry's insight:

Yes, we know ThinkGeek is normally the place you go to get t-shirts and mugs with geeky slogans we normal folk have no way of understanding, but it seems that while ThinkGeek fans are taking a break from coding and watching The Big Bang, they enjoy an altogether different sort of hacking... that's right, they get out assorted knives, ice cream scoops, clay sculpting tools and probably a few bits and pieces from their bicycle repair kits, and get busy carving Space Invaders characters into pumpkins. 


We've had a skim through for some pumpkin carving ideas for this year's Jack O'Lantern, and there are literally about 30 templates I am dying to try. There is a whole range - some require some big old fashioned hacking with a paring knife, while others need a steady hand and some shading  skills. 


You'll find pumpkin carving templates for everything from the Game of Thrones House Targaryen crest to Spock to the Avengers Logo, and even a bit of Manga - including a very creepy Pinkie Pie. 


Well done, geeks - this is the best pumpkin carving template collection ever. [hip,hip]

Halloween Costumes Kids Can Make: Mummies - Red Ted Art's Blog

Halloween Costumes Kids Can Make: Mummies - Red Ted Art's Blog | Children | Scoop.it
[Translate] I am running a short series of Halloween Costumes that kids can make. There is nothing like BEING prepared..
Janis Curry's insight:

I love this do-it-yourself mummy costume from Red Ted Art! My children will be absolutely delighted that they can create their own gruesome sort of costume, and that it won't involve 100 staples digging into their skin due to my (lack of) sewing skills. 

 

Added bonus... you'll end up with an empty toilet rool tube afterwards, perfect for making a cute little Hallowe'en pinata:
