Teal Pumpkin Project helps all children trick-or-treat
Halloween is often a favorite holiday among children. However, when a child can’t eat the candy due to health concerns, it makes Halloween a little less fun.
The Teal Pumpkin Project is here to help, creating alternatives to handing out candy, so that kids can still enjoy trick-or-treating without worrying about their allergies.
You can put a teal pumpkin out on your doorstep to alert children and families that you have non-food treats available.
A few non-food treat item ideas from Food Allergy And Research Education’s website include:
Glow sticks, bracelets, or necklaces
Pencils, pens, crayons or markers
Halloween erasers or pencil toppers
Whistles, kazoos, or noisemakers
Finger puppets or novelty toys
