Have you heard of the teal pumpkin project? Launched at a national level in 2014, the goal is to help all children enjoy Halloween, even those with food allergies. It’s easy to participate – just have some non-food treats at your house for trick-or-treaters and indicate so by putting out a teal pumpkin (or printable window poster).
Because I have a son with food allergies, I love taking part in this initiative. It’s also great to have non-candy items for the really little guys (even if they don’t have allergies). Plus, I don’t need to worry about eating any leftovers 😉
Here’s a few of the great non-food alternatives for trick-or-treaters this year that I found on Amazon*. The great news is there’s plenty of options to fit any budget!
Oriental Trading Company also has a TON of other options!
Are you interested in joining the teal pumpkin project this year? If so, get some non-food goodies and make sure to add your house to the map here!
