Have you heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project?

It's all about offering an allergy-friendly Halloween. There are so many kids out there with food allergies and Halloween leaves some kids feeling left out. The Teal Pumpkin Project was launched a few years ago by a Tennessee mom to help create a safer, happier, more inclusive Halloween for all kids. She believed that every kid should be able to experience the joys of trick-or-treating on Halloween. The Teal Pumpkin Project makes sure all kids come home with something on Halloween night.

"It's about making the joy of trick-or-treating available to as many kids as possible."

How can I be part of the Teal Pumpkin Project?

Becoming a part of the Teal Pumpkin Project is easy. First, offer non-candy treats for trick-or-treaters. Be sure to keep your non-candy treats separate from any candy you will be giving out to avoid cross contamination. Then, decorate a Teal Pumpkin to display at your house to let trick-or-treaters know you are an allergy-friendly Halloween house.

We picked up a cheap pumpkin and the kids enjoyed painting it.

You can take the Teal Pumpkin Project even further with these finds to make it easier. If you have a kid with food allergies you might enjoy sporting this cute teal pumpkin bucket, shirt and allergy awareness stickers to put on their trick-or-treating buckets from Name Bubbles.

Treats for an allergy-friendly Halloween

Giving non-candy treats is the most important part of Teal Pumpkin Project. At our house we offer the traditional cauldron of chocolates and gummies, but we also have a smaller bowl of non-candy treats like bubbles, vampire fangs, and Halloween tattoos that we hand out too.

Below, are some of our favorite non-candy goodies that you can give out on Halloween night to trick-or-treaters. Also, these also make good favors for a classroom party.
