Fresh Fall Allergy Hacks for Cornucopia Snack Crafts!

Here are some fun and fresh ways to remake the fall holiday treats for the little loves in your life!

A cornucopia of fruit or candies (I vote fruit of course; however…. some allergy friendly candies are some made by Yum Earth and Surf Sweets…and you’ll be avoiding artificial food dyes)

I couldn’t find the author of this image that is abundantly found on pinterest and other web linky places. But, thank you, whoever you are, for this ! Make this gluten free by using Let’s Do Organic Gluten Free Sugar Cones!

I imagine children having fun filling in their cornucopias as they explore new treats. For teachers and therapists looking to make it even more educational they could use initial letter cards to have children match to the fruit’s name… or scale it for literary development on several levels. Also, for non verbal children they could request each fruit using a picture of it. (You just can’t take the speech pathologist out of this food allergy mama). I’m also thinking a song adapted to familiar tunes using the fruit names or colors could make the handing out of the fruit fun.

Another allergy friendly candy other than Yum Earth and Surf Sweets is Skittles (tons of fake stuff in them but easy to find at a store). I personally love http://www.indiecandies.com. They have top 11 allergy free candies that is seasonal and fun. Double bonus is that they are dye free and all natural.

Have fun snacking and crafting! What is your on your list for fun snacks for the upcoming holidays?
