For as long as I can remember we have handed out non-food treats to Halloween trick-or-treaters. One year we handed out some super-cute pom-pom owl creatures. This year we handed out plastic vampire fangs (we let the kiddo pick what toy we should give out).
I was so excited to hear about the Teal Pumpkin Project last year! I think it’s a wonderful way to let people with food allergies know that they can still get a treat at your house. I started this project last year before you could buy plastic teal pumpkins at Michaels. The good side to it is that I not only made a teal jack-o-lantern for our porch, but I also made a teal trick-or-treat pumpkin to use for treat-or-treating and the treats I handed out on Costume Sunday at church. I also love the goofy smile my jack-o-lantern has.
I think it turned out really well! I sealed it with some matte sealant spray paint and signed the bottom, too!
Question: What treats do you give out to Halloween trick-or-treaters?
