Halloween Pumpkin Carving Tips

When carving pumpkins, make sure to follow these safety guidelines:

1. Choose the right blade such as the inexpensive carving kits at the store

2. Set up a carving station with newspapers or something not slippery

3. Make small, controlled cuts moving away from your body.

4. Make sure you stay calm through cutting and slowly dislodge the blade if it gets stuck.

5. If you do happen to get cut and the bleeding does not stop after 10 minutes, go to the emergency room.
