Teal Pumpkin Project . . .
Halloween is fast approaching and many of us love to see the cute and imaginative costumes that the little ones have. Living in the same house for 14 years, I have watched some of these little ones grow up before my eyes. As they get older, the costumes change from cute and cuddly to gross and scary.
Sadly, a few of the kids that come around, are not able to take treats from our candy bowl. Food allergies are a real problem and for some children, deadly. The Teal Pumpkin Project has been trying to raise awareness to this plight. A simple nut candy bar placed in a child’s bag can contaminate an entire night of Trick or Treating for a child.
The Teal Pumpkin Project has suggestions for treats and gifts to pass out for Halloween. This year, in one bowl, have your favorite candies to pass out. In another bowl, put in items like Dracula Teeth, Glow Sticks, Bracelets, or Necklaces, Pencil Toppers or Erasers, Temporary Tattoos, Bookmarks, and Spider Rings just to name a few. Let the children pick which bowl they want to pull from. You’d be surprised to see that in may cases, they really want the toys over the candy.
You can find a full list of resources and information at the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Website HERE
. Print off a flyer or yard sign and let the kids & parents know that this year, your house is a safe place for them to Trick or Treat at . . . .
