You can use real pumpkins and cut open top and scoop out inside, but I prefer to skip the taking out all the guts part and use an artificial  pumpkin from a local craft store. Have a responsible adult help use a knife to cut out a silly, spooky, or funny face. You can use any size pumpkin, just remember the bigger the pumpkin the more material you will need to get the huge WOW effect.

The erruption is so cool and dramatic your kids are going to flip! I much prefer the hydrogen perioxide and yeast recipe as it produces an abundant amount of foam. It just flows more smoothly and creates more of a WOW effect.
