Today, we took visual thinking to the pumpkin patch and carved up a storm.

4:00 - Icebreaker
Take a 3" x 5" notecard and write your name on one side. On the other side, draw a visual depiction of your first or most memorable trick-or-treating experience.

4:10 - Drawing
After we got familiar, everyone drew a piece of paper from a plastic jack-o-lantern. On the paper was one of three categories from which they were to create their pumpkin design from.

4:20 - Carving
People got to work carving creations in the Spooky, Funny and Custom categories.

5:30 - Presenting
Once everyone was done, the quintessential step of adding and lighting votive candles commenced.

5:40 - Voting
Everyone filled out their ballots for the best-in-show of each category.
