Halloween is around the corner! And if you haven’t gotten your children’s costume by now it’s crunch time!
Don’t forget they will need a trick or treat bag as well and if you are like me, you learn something everyday! If you haven’t read (or heard already) the Teal Pumpkin Project is making it’s way this year! It’s essentially raising awareness of food allergies and promoting inclusion of all trick or treaters this year! FARE (food allergy research and education) is getting started with a worldwide movement to create a safer, happier Halloween for all kids. It’s really simple! You place a teal pumpkin on your doorstep to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available (such as glow sticks, small toys or bubbles).
Fill your teal pumpkin (or bag inside) with these items to make sure all children feel included this year!
I nanny for many children, and most of them with food allergies, so I think this is a great idea that I will be fully supporting this year as I believe you should too!
Great your teal pumpkin before it’s too late! Or paint one teal! (could even be a childs project!)
