I have a confession to make. I've never really liked Halloween. I'm just not the person to get excited about dressing up as someone or something else. When I became a food allergy mom, that dislike for Halloween intensified because of all the reasons we know so well (our kids feeling excluded, worried about a reaction, etc. etc). So I was honestly not looking forward to blogging about Halloween. But, then it came to me! Why not research unique non-food Halloween treat ideas? This is something I can get excited about!
We've been doing the Teal Pumpkin Project for about 3 or 4 years now. Our usual go-to for giveaways have always been glow sticks. These have been a hit, especially if kids come after dark and they can put them on right away. This year, I thought I would check out other unique options and share them with you. Believe me, if you think outside the box, you can find some really neat things! Check out what I found here:
Now that you have a tonne of ideas about what to hand out for your non-food treats, you might want to decide WHERE to get your treats.
