Hey Crafty Friends! For those of you who celebrate Halloween, can I ask a crafty favor of you?
Make one more craft- a Teal Pumpkin.
Did you know that 1 in 13 children has a food allergy? That’s a LOT of trick-or-treaters who are getting a whole lot of nothing in their candy bags.
For the past 2-3 years, I have handed out glow sticks, vampire teeth, stickers and even pencils for kids who have food allergies. My daughter’s friend has multiple allergies, and it all started as a way of making Little Miss M feel like she was getting some goodies, just like her friends.
This year I became aware of the #TealPumpkinProject and decided to paint a pumpkin (a faux one, so I can use it year after year.)
Here are some good ideas for things to hand out either WITH your regular candy goodies or instead of them.
It’s so funny- I found that a LOT of the kids liked the non-food items, allergies or not. It’s just different and fun!
Can I convince you?
Below is a sign you can just print out and place near your door- just copy it and select “fit to page” when you go to print it out.
Make sure you check out http://www.foodallergy.org/teal-pumpkin-project for more ideas and support. Thanks for your time!
