Keep Your Family Safe While Carving Pumpkins
Picking the Right Pumpkin
Knowing the Age Limit for Carving
Using Proper Tools
A pumpkin carving kit that you can get from the store or your local pumpkin patch is standard pumpkin practice! However, for the initial cutting of the top of the pumpkin, be sure to use a sharp kitchen knife, and immediately after your first cuts, get it out of the way. The small tools that are designed for pumpkin carving will more easily help you and your family control the small cuts.
After you are done carving your pumpkin, have your child turn on an LED candle to proudly set in the center of the pumpkin. Set it on your front porch and then enjoy some freshly baked seeds (alongside your favorite Halloween candy!) This Halloween, Play Hard, Play Safe!
