Kids will get the chance to learn pumpkin carving skills, make Halloween decorations and more at a special event at the Children’s Museum of the Sierra on Saturday, Oct 27.
The Halloween Festival will feature pumpkin carving lessons from members of the Sierra Woodcarvers and will help kids make some truly unique creations.
“The Sierra Woodcarvers volunteered to get involved and show kids how to do relief-style pumpkin carvings. They last longer than the traditional jack-O-lantern carvings, you can do more with them, and of course you don’t have to worry about kids using knives,” said Steve Montalto, director of the Children’s Museum of the Sierra.
The woodcarvers also made several Halloween decorations that kids can paint, in addition to other craft projects going on at the museum throughout the day.
