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.
