@K8sMom2002 I got the pumpkin from Michaels, then I bought decorative, ornate bats to place on it and ordered 1" vinyl mailbox letters off Amazon to use! I tried several other letters/stickers but they wouldn't stay. I almost did stencil & paint but this worked well and is reusable every year

I would use a can of white beans instead of the chickpeas just to be on the safe side. After reading and articule at www.allergicliving.com where its said is probably ok, I asked my son's allergy Dr. and she told me to avoided along with lentils.

Last year, I filled half the treat bowl with candy and half with non-edible items. Not sure which children had food restrictions, I offered everyone a choice. I was surprised at how many kiddos opted for the non-edible treats. Biggest hit..glow in the dark vampire teeth! Super cheap, too!

Re: #KeepItTeal: A Safer and More Inclusive Halloween for Kids on Special Diets

Yes there is a way to show that. It is known as the Teal pumpkin project. You put a Teal pumpkin on your porch, or front of your house along with one of the signs letting those know that you have safe non food or allergy safe items . That is what the Teal pumpkins represent.

Re: #KeepItTeal: A Safer and More Inclusive Halloween for Kids on Special Diets

Dawn Aaron Laird ·
Wow Georgina5.... Did you HONESTLY think I didn't read the article? I wasn't asking about MY PORCH... I was asking if there was a way to "mark" your kids so other parents at the HOUSES know your kids are TEAL. It really isn't that difficult to read the response before answering incorrectly. Especially with kids 5+ you aren't necessarily on the porch with them making sure they take something they can have, and kids are kids and can have that out of their bucket on their way down the stairs...
