Teal Pumpkin Project Time
Last year, and this year we have a teal colored pumpkin that is full of NON CANDY items for kids who have food allergies . We will still give candy out, but there are special things for those kids that just can't have it. The look on a kids face when they get some bubbles or this year, I found slime instead of something that they can't enjoy is amazing!
There are so many kids out there that have allergies like Weston that go trick or treating every year and can't eat ANYTHING they get. Weston has a soy and dairy so, unless someone out there hands out $4 Theo bars, Weston can't have any chocolate. And let's be real, that's never going to happen. We have friends that have kids that are allergic to nuts, fructose, gluten, and so many other things, that really, trick or treating is fun to do, but the when the rest of the kids are going through their stashes, they just hand it over to their parents. At our house, Weston gets to trade his candy in for a Theo bar of his choice and that makes everyone happy.
You can go visit last year's post and check out the free printable I made to stick outside your door to let people know that you have non food options for food allergies.
