16 Non-Food Halloween Treats for the Teal Pumpkin Project

 

Have you heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project? Imagine how tough trick-or-treating must be for a child with an allergy to nuts, dairy, gluten, or any other food. To help these children have fun and be included in trick-or-treating, many people have started displaying a teal pumpkin on Halloween to let them know that they have non-food Halloween treats available.

To show your participation, you can print a teal pumpkin to hang on your door, paint a regular pumpkin teal, or purchase a teal artificial pumpkin. I purchased a teal artificial pumpkin from CVS so I don’t have to do any printing or painting every year. If you’re crafty, you can make this DIY teal pumpkin project sign.

    I’ve heard of this project before, but haven’t participated in it because I usually go out to a party, but I love the idea behind it. I hope more people join in on it since you are helping spread the word about it some more.

    I’ve never heard of that project before but it sounds wonderful and give kids who with allergies the chance to enjoy the season like any other out there.

    My kids would love the slap bracelets. I remember they were outlawed at my elementary school back in the 90s. Ha!
