Teal Pumpkin Project® & Non-Candy Treats

What is the Teal Pumpkin Project®?

The Teal Pumpkin Project® is a movement created by FARE, Food Allergy Research & Education. This movement was created to raise awareness of food allergies and promote inclusion among all children and trick-or-treaters. The movement seeks to provide alternative treats and handouts to children with allergies or who are unable to eat candy. Learn more about FARE and the Teal Pumpkin Project® here.

What can you do?

Participation in this movement is easy! All you have to do is provide a non-food treat to trick-or-treaters – like the toys listed below; place a teal pumpkin in front of your house to alert parents and trick-or-treaters that you have an alternative treat available; add your home to FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project® map. Lastly, make sure to spread the word to family and friends about your participation!

Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips

While preparing for Halloween and a night of trick-or-treating with the kids, it is important to consider the safety precautions both you and your children should take to ensure it is a fun and safe night to remember!

Always travel in groups – Young children especially should be with an adult at all times. While older children may not require supervision, they should not trick or treat alone!

Opt for face paint instead of masks – This keeps children’s vision unobscured the way a mask might. Make sure to test the makeup or paint ahead of time to make sure there is no skin reaction.

Try: Crayon Costume Makeup; Glow-in-the-Dark Face Paint; Halloween 4 Color Makeup; Black Cream Makeup.

Stay lit – wear reflective clothing, a flashlight or a glow stick at all times! Once the sun goes down, you and your children will still be able to find each other.

Try: 22” Glow Necklaces; Giant Light Sticks; Mini Neon Flashlights.

Use Safe Costume Accessories – accessories like swords and other weapons can be dangerous. They should be made of soft materials like foam or rubber. This way, if the child falls they will not hurt themselves on their accessories.

Try: Foam Fun Swords; Mini Sword Inflates;

Check the kids’ candy – before the kids go crazy on their candy from the night, briefly look through the candy they received to make sure there is nothing opened, homemade or unwrapped. You might even take this opportunity to steal a piece or two… 😉
