- Clean out the pumpkin, scraping the flesh thinnest in the region in which you’ll carve the design. Use a photocopier to enlarge or reduce the pattern to fit the pumpkin.
- Attached the pattern to the pumpkin with tape.
- Use a pin to make closely spaced pin pricks along the stencil lines, piercing the paper.
- Use thin crafts, linoleum, or wood-cutting knives to carve the pattern. Cut completely through solid lines. Simply peel away skin within dotted line (known as “etching”) to enhance features. You may want to etch before you carve to avoid breakage.

And just like that it became August! As we move into the second part of cottage season, rainy days start making an appearance. Our favourite way to spend a rainy day at the cottage? Movie nights of course! We asked our Muskoka Bear Wear community what their top 5 movies were this summer whether that be new releases or tried-and-true family favourites! Here’s what they said:
Top Gun: Maverick
This legacy sequel to the 1986 fan favourite Top Gun came out as the number 1 movie to watch this summer from our MBW community! If you’re looking for an action and adventure movie to catch in theatres, Top Gun: Maverick is our community’s top pick!
The Great Outdoors
Coming in at number 2 on the top movies for this summer, our community brought back a cottage camping favourite with The Great Outdoors! This 1988 comedy showcases two very different families spending a vacation together and all the trouble they get up to! Check out this old-school favourite on Amazon Prime.
What is a summer movie list without an animated family movie (complete with music and singing animals!). With the threat of the foreclosure of Buster’s theatre, a singing competition seems like the best way for Buster to save it! If you’re looking for a movie that will keep the family smiling, Sing is the way to go!
Minions: The Rise of Gru
Theatre visits are a great way to spend a rainy day, especially when you have the giggles of the minions to keep you laughing! Learn more about Gru’s beginnings as he plans to become a supervillian with the help of all his minions!
Sweet Home Alabama
Because every summer movie list needs a summer romance movie, Sweet Home Alabama takes the 5th spot on our summer movie list suggested by our MBW community! This 2002 classic is a comedic romance rollercoaster where the main character is torn between an old flame and new! Check out this romcom on Disney+!
