Every year more families participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project offering non-food treats for those who cannot partake in candy treats. It is a simple and mindful way for people to be good neighbors. To encourage others to join the movement, I have made it easy to participate with a Teal Pumpkin Project Printable Sign and a list of inexpensive non-food treat ideas. I hope you will join me in supporting the Teal Pumpkin Project and making Halloween a fun and safe holiday for all children.

Although I am lucky and my children do not have any food allergies, I have friends and loved ones whose children have serious food allergies. Holidays are especially difficult for kids with food allergies, which is why the Teal Pumpkin Project is important. It notifies kids with food allergies of safe treats and lets them trick or treat with their friends.
For those who love candy, like my kids, it doesn’t have to be an all or nothing. At my house we offer candy to everyone, but welcome those who need a non-food treat with a teal pumpkin. For children who want it, we have a separate pumpkin filled with safe trinkets to choose from (see list below).
