100 Free Halloween Pumpkin Carving Templates Printable Patterns

Crafts


Free fun and whimsical DIY pumpkin carving patterns are as plentiful as the pumpkins you see in the fields, at neighborhood pumpkin patches and at markets right now.  For those of you celebrating, Halloween will be here before you know it. So it's time to start (or finish) decorating your home, if you haven't done it already. It's also a good idea to start planning this year's jack-o'-lantern masterpiece now, if you're carving one. To get the best choice, select your pumpkin now. But, wait to actually carve the design until just a day or so before Halloween to keep your pumpkin as fresh as possible.



Isn't this adorbs? I love this super simple pumpkin carving idea for baby's first Halloween which makes a great photo prop for some Instagram worthy images this fall. All you do is cut the pumpkin top open and hollow out then cut two smaller holes in front slightly larger in diameter than your child's legs.

Seriously, no matter what you like, what your skill level is and what you are looking for you are bound to find one or more free downloadable pumpkin stencils here that you or the kids will want to use to carve your pumpkin this Halloween.

Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player Family Home Entertainment Review

Technology




The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

Why keep paying hundreds of dollars per month for your family to access entertainment via a traditional cable service? There's a better way -- with the new Google Chromecast Media Player now available at Best Buy, paired with the streaming video apps you already use -- you can finally cut the cord to cable and save lots of money. Imagine kids, mom and dad all getting to simultaneously enjoy streaming their favorite videos, shows, and movies at home on the big screen family TV, other televisions in your house or on their wifi-connected mobile devices. It's a pretty amazing thought, isn't it?


How it Works


The Chromecast Media Player is easy to use and connect to your existing wireless home network (remember a wireless router, sold separately is required). To get started, all you have to do is plug Chromecast into your TV's HDMI port and a power outlet, then tap and start streaming the shows you love from your phone, as well as listen to your playlists. The best part is you can still multi-task, watching while also using your mobile device to take calls, text, send, email, check social media, and anything else you do.


Stream entertainment on your TV from your family’s devices


Viewing entertainment at home with the kids will never be the same. Chromecast works with Google Home, too. So you can start streaming whatever you'd like with your voice simply by saying something like "Okay Google, play Orange is the New Black from Netflix on my living room TV."

Just imagine, with access to more than 2000 entertainment apps such as Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, HBO NOW, and more you can see your favorite programs, movies, sports, games, and videos, as well as listen to music. Keep in mind some services require subscriptions to view content. In addition, Google Home, Chromecast, and compatible content is required to cast to a TV using Google Home.


This is an easy way to upgrade your family home entertainment experience without spending more money on a new TV. At just $35 each, the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player is so affordable you can get own one for every television in your house. 

What's in the Box

  • Chromecast (latest model) Media Player 
  • Owner's Manual
  • Power Adapter
