It’s important to supervise children while carving, but you must also exercise caution when lighting them up!
Only adults should use matches or lighters to light the candle inside the pumpkin. Store matches and lighters out of reach of children.
Make sure the candle is securely anchored inside the pumpkin.
Consider carving the pumpkin from the bottom instead of the top. This makes it easier to level the pumpkin, and it can be placed over a candle that is in a safe container.
Make sure you light the pumpkin with a long fireplace match or a bbq lighter to prevent burning your hand.
The SAFEST way to light your pumpkin is with LED candles, a small flashlight, or an electric window candle!
