National Park Service Reveals Hilarious Pumpkin Carving Templates
It is that time of year again. Time to pick out the perfect pumpkin, slice it with a giant knife, and casually rip its guts out. Pumpkin carving is always one of our favorite fall events in my household. Taking time to precisely carve the perfect design into a hollowed-out gourd. Picking the design can be tough though. Some years I go "free-hand" and just start cutting. Other years I like to use templates that help keep the lines straight and the designs immaculate.
The National Park Service recently unveiled a "Park Pumpkin Carving Challenge." A challenge that features downloadable templates that represent iconic images of things you may see in our National Parks.
THE BATTY ONE
Our National Parks host tons of bats. Why not slap one on a pumpkin?
THE AUTUMN LEAVES
Lots of tourists flock to our National Parks every Fall to witness the changing colors of nature.
THE FULL MOON
One of the first animals that come to mind when you think of Yellowstone National Park is the wolf. This template features a howling wolf.
Camping is all part of the fun of visiting our National Parks. This fun template features your little home away from home.
THE FAT BEAR
Another iconic image that comes to mind when you think of our National Parks. The hungry bear trying to steal your picnic basket.
What pumpkin display would be complete without a spider web. This template will allow you to carve the perfect web.
FINALLY....MY FAVORITE TEMPLATE
THE CLOSE CALL
This template features what we call a "touron" getting a little too close to some of the residents of our National Parks. Nothing is more terrifying than having 1 ton of mad bison chasing you. Why not put it on a pumpkin?
