Life cycle of a pumpkin

We have about a month of fun with our pumpkin each fall by not carving it into a jack-o-lantern right away.  Before carving, we'll use the pumpkin as a centerpiece and then decorate the pumpkin with stickers.  After carving, we always toast the seeds, but we also have fun with other decorating elements like making the pumpkin into a Mr. Potato Head.  When the insides started getting a little furry, I took the pumpkin to a playdate and the kids walked the pumpkin with string and played pumkin soccer with it, too.  Then we said bye and threw Mr. Pumpkin into the trash (we should have composted him at the nearby garden, but I forgot).
