I normally make Jack-o’-Lantern’s out of pumpkins using a normal knife. This year I bought a cheap kit for carving pumpkins. I found that it made a huge difference using the carver I got (pictured at the bottom in the photo above). The top tool is for scraping out the inside of the pumpkin. I used it in conjunction with a large spoon. The two together worked well.
Also, I felt more comfortable letting my 9 year old daughter and her friend use the carver above. Normally, when the tool is a knife, I do all the carving. But with the tool above, I felt comfortable letting them carve under my guidance.
Next year, I’ll definitely use these tools again. Having the right tools for the job is important.
