Now you need to scoop out the guts. (Ewww!) I like the flat scrapey tool that comes with most carving kits. You could also use a spoon or even an ice cream scoop. Make sure that you do a good job getting out all of the seeds and stringy things. You don't want the local wildlife helping you remove seeds after you have carved your pumpkin. You also don't want anything hanging down that could catch of fire if you use a candle in your pumpkin.
