Doubt regarding one of the examples above

Tu amèneras des citrouilles pour qu'on les sculpte? I thought "amener" was used for people and animals. Shouldn't we use "apporter" here ?

This relates to:
Pour que (so that, in order that) is always followed by Le Subjonctif Présent (subjunctive mood) -

Bonjour Shivani ! Excellent question! Technically, you are correct: amener is for people whereas apporter is for things. Unfortunately, this is one of these very frequent mistakes most French natives make, including myself :) I've now corrected this example :) Merci et à bientôt !
