The Teal Pumpkin Project

Halloween is the month of costumes and candy.  It’s an exciting time for kids of all ages – and going door to door is part of the fun.   But what about the kids that have food allergies?  And the parents that are afraid of the off-chance their child might get something that has been tampered with?  It’s not a fun thought, but in our current culture, it’s a reality.   Well here is a great way for ALL children to participate in the fun!  The Teal Pumpkin Project!

This will be my third year of not handing out anything edible.  I hit the dollar store and buy packages of various toys – gliders, bracelets, glow sticks, etc.  Pencils are a great idea too!  You can also go to websites like Oriental Trading Company that sells items in bulk at a great price!

Kids like it.  Parents like it.  And it is a safe way to celebrate the excitement of Halloween!  Who’s in with me?
