The Teal Pumpkin Project for an Allergy-Friendly Halloween


AND .. THIS! This is wonderful awareness and inclusion for all the children out there! We will be doing this in our part to make it a safe and fun Halloween for all who come to our house.

I can just see Miss Watermelon’s face light up in my mind’s eye as we post the teal pumpkin poster FARE provided. I can foresee a time in  years to come when we see more and more of these on our little excursion in our neighborhood Halloween night!

Thank you, FARE!!

This Halloween, FARE is encouraging food allergy families to start a new tradition: painting a pumpkin teal and placing it on your porch as a sign to other families managing food allergies that you have non-food treats available at your home. Your teal pumpkin is also a way to raise awareness in your neighborhood about food allergies!

Purchasing inexpensive non-food treats to hand out is a great way to include all children in trick-or-treating, and we hope that the Teal Pumpkin Project will be a tradition for years to come.

Examples of non-food items include: glow bracelets or necklaces, pencils, markers, boxes of crayons, erasers, bubbles, stamps, mini Slinkies, whistles or noisemakers, bouncy balls, coins, spider rings, vampire teeth, mini notepads, playing cards, bookmarks, stickers, and stencils. Oriental Trading is a website used by many parents to order these items.
