Pumpkin Carving Safety Precautions

1. Tools – Use tools from a pumpkin carving kit. The tools are usually small which makes them easy to control and to use when making detailed cuts. You can buy them online or in some convenience stores.

2. Carve Your Pumpkin With The Top On – You will be less tempted to put your hand inside and cut your hand.

3. Clean, Dry, Well-lit Area – Keep your tools dry and clean and take your time when carving.

4. Don’t Let Kids Carve – Children 14 and under should not do the actual carving. You can let them use a marker to choose the shapes and perhaps clean the pulp and seeds with their hands or a spoon. It’s important to supervise older teens too.

5. Know First Aid – If you or a family member gets cut while carving a pumpkin, apply direct pressure to the injury using a clean, dry cloth. If bleeding doesn’t stop in 15 minutes, get to an emergency room.

Halloween Safety Tips

1. “Flame Retardant” – Buy costumes that are labelled “Flame Retardant” to avoid fire hazards near pumpkin flames. If you make your own costume, use nylon or polyester materials. These are flame retardant

2. Reflect! – Add reflective tape to your kids’ costume so they’re easily seen at night.

3. Beards – Adjust wigs and beards so they don’t cover your kids’ nose, eyes or mouth.

4. Non-Toxic Makeup – Use Non-toxic face paint or makeup

5. Contact Lenses – Avoid decorative contact lenses unless they are prescribed by an eye doctor for your child.

6. Oversized Shoes – To prevent falls, avoid oversized and high-heeled shoes. Make sure the rest of the costume fits well too.
