Halloween can be extra frightening for kiddos with food allergies. Chocolate, peanuts and even soy and wheat are common allergies in kids that make finding treats without the tricks challenging on Halloween night.
Thankfully, the Teal Pumpkin Project® was developed to help kids and parents partake in allergy-friendly trick-or-treating. When you place a teal pumpkin at your doorstep, it indicates that you are handing out non-food treats as an option for little ghouls and goblins. You can paint your own pumpkins or pick up a teal craft pumpkin from Michaels that you can use year after year.
Be sure to stock up on non-candy treats to hand out. From glow bracelets to spider rings, plastic fangs, squishy brains and bouncy eyeballs, Michaels has plenty of thrills for trick-or-treaters.
Party favor packs are a great value for little Halloween toys, stamps, pencils and erasers. Who doesn’t love silly eyeball rings?
Participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project is a simple way to make a big difference for the children in your community living with food allergies. For more info and free downloadable signs for outside your home, visit www.tealpumpkinproject.org
