Jack-O-Lantern Carving Tools
This is my family's List of Tools Used To Carve Pumpkins every year. This List is for kids with adult supervision.
1. Pumpkin Carving Kit
The Pumpkin Carving Kit comes with everything you need to carve your Pumpkin. Although take into account that these kits are not made to last.
2. Garbage Bag
Stay with me here. We lay the garbage bag out and put the Pumpkin on it while carving. You can use a piece of cardboard, wood or hard plastic. The garbage bag keeps the mess contained to some extent.
3. Big Spoon
The Big Spoon is your go to tool for scooping and cleaning the inside of the Pumpkin. I prefer the metal serving spoons with a strong handle but not a long handle.
4. Latex Gloves
Now this tool is up to you. But to keep your hands from being ooie gooie use some latex gloves. Make sure you pick up the right size.
Now a days we have stencils. Back in my day we did not have these and boy did we pump out some hideous looking Pumpkins. If you want the finished professional look use Stencils they are amazing.
Not really a Tool but you need to light that Pumpkin up! These are my wife's favorite.
Thanks for checking out my Blog and as always be safe in everything you do!
