The Teal Pumpkin Project: A Safer, Happier Halloween For All Kids

Posted in Family Traditions, Home {Our Nest}, Motherhood
on October 29, 2017

The Teal Pumpkin Project, started by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), encourages families to offer non-candy options for trick ‘r treaters on Halloween.  This allows kids with food allergies or other sensitivities to participate.

A friend of mine has a daughter named Molly, and she has a peanut allergy.  Her allergy made Halloween a bit tricky until teal pumpkins started showing up on porches in their neighborhood.  Now, Molly {and her mommy} can enjoy Halloween just like all of the other families.

Here I’ll share with you more information about The Teal Pumpkin Project, how to participate, links for trinkets and toys to give away this Halloween, as well as FREE printable resources to help you decorate your porch and teal pumpkin.  Are you ready to join The Teal Pumpkin Project family?

If you live in the area, a trip to The Toledo Zoo for Luminous Nights is definitely worth the drive.  I feel so #blessed to live close enough to the Toledo Zoo. It’s an amazing place to visit for the entire family.
