Safer tools for pumpkin Picassos.

Jack-o'-lanterns are supposed to be scary, but carving them shouldn't be. The tools shown here will spare you the fright of having a sharp knife slip while doing a job for which it was never intended.

Each of these four tools was designed specifically for carving pumpkins (the jack-o'-lantern below each one shows the effects it can create). They'll let you and your kids do your most artistic work ever--with greater ease and less danger than the old paring knife ever offered. Look for them at grocery and discount stores, or any place that's selling the ubiquitous orange gourds this month.

The two shown on the left greatly simplify carving for children. The other two take pumpkin carving to a new level of sophistication, yet are still safe for supervised kids. Instruction and pattern books for these two will quickly bring you up to speed on their techniques (the saw's book even includes a recipe for pumpkin pie).
