Why Teal Pumpkins This Halloween?
This is my favorite time of the year, Fall! That means the holidays are not far! Come to think of it, Halloween is less than 3 weeks away!
This Halloween, you are going to see something a little different! This year, you will see Teal Pumpkins! Just like myself, I'm sure you are wondering, what does a teal pumpkin mean?
If you approach a house with a teal pumpkin on their doorstep, it means they have non-food treats available, such as glow sticks or small toys. This simple act is a kind and thoughtful gesture for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.
- Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters
- Place a teal pumpkin in front of your home to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available
- Add your home to the Teal Pumpkin Project map
- Spread the word! Share the Teal Pumpkin Project with your friends and family
With all the food allergies that children have nowadays, I think this is a wonderful and thoughtful idea.
