Kansas Dad's brother was in town recently and brought the Mr. Potato Head Pirate Pumpkin Decorating Kit. He knows our children well. They begged to make a pumpkin pirate every day. On Thursday, Kansas Dad picked one out for them and we pulled out all the pieces.
There aren't any directions with the kit, but I don't see how you could just push the pieces in. I used a screwdriver to make holes where the kids wanted to place everything and then they took turns pushing them in.
The hat had to wait until Kansas Dad cut off more of the stem, but the kids didn't mind. They love the pumpkin. He sits on our counter and watches them eat every meal. Hopefully he'll last until Halloween.
