This is a skill thats acquired once you become a dad.
I've been carving for about 8 years now, since my daughter was 2. I usually do one for each member of the family. Thank god my kids finally wanted to do thier own this year so i only had to do 2!!
The first 2 are mine and the second 2 are my kids...
This is my 10 yr old daughter'*. She did the entire thing by herself with the exception of cutting the top off.
This is my 7 yr old Son'*- He had a little help from mom, but not much
