our Island community had a pumpkin carving party on Saturday
Lee and Asa made Jack-O-Lanterns 100% by themselves and I helped Maxine (she drew the design, I carved)
What was interesting to me was how completely each pumpkin said something about each child's personality:
Maxine's (far left) is all about the eyeballs. People with defined eyeballs are what she loves to draw lately. Plus her pumpkin is just really cute.
Lee's pumpkin (middle) is quirky just like him.
Asa's abstract Jack-O-Lantern (far right) is slightly perverse and different from everyone else's (notice the knife stuck in the side)
I don't want to put the children into little boxes by analyzing them this way- I just love how each child shines through in his/her creative expression!
