If you are carving pumpkins, there are a few things to remember.
Supervise your older children and use the knives for your younger children. There are safety carving kits that are much better than using your kitchen knife and worth the
investment (much cheaper than an ER visit and stitches) if you have
Carve away from you and keep your hands clear of the knife’s path as you work.
Keep a cloth handy to dry off your knife as you work to keep it less slippery.
Check out some of the carvings my husband and I have done. My Dia de los Muertos jackolantern was featured in Make Magazine’s 2007 Halloween edition. The sugar skull took 3 days to carve and somehow (as I am a pretty big clutz) I managed to not injure myself!
