A week or so ago, we carved a pair of Jack-o-Lanterns for the porch. The kids favorite part was pulling out all of the pumpkin guts. They don't often get a chance to get super-messy on purpose, so they really got a kick out of it. Lori and I helped them with some of the actual carving - although we let them do a lot of it. It's rained a fair bit this week though, so they're starting to grow some mold inside. We might have to toss them on the compost heap and carve some new ones before Halloween.
