It's fall, y'all! OK, it's only September, but that still means Halloween is right around the corner — and pumpkin season is in full swing. We're not talking pumpkin-spice-flavored everything; we're talking the squash. Picking it, cooking it, carving it.

Pumpkin-carving is a blast for the whole family, but it can be frustrating when you have little fingers (that is, are a child) and work feverishly on a creation only to have your jack-o'-lantern's face cave in. It's also tear-inducing when you can't get your carving to look how you want it to. But with the right template, kids can carve perfect (or at least passable) witches, cats, dogs and bats on their big, beautiful pumpkins. 

We've collected 100 pumpkin-carving templates that are totally doable no matter your skill level — so kids and adults can get in on the action. Just print and carve away.
