8 Creative and Fun Ideas to Support the Teal Pumpkin Project

The Teal Pumpkin Project with Two Pumpkins

The Teal Pumpkin Project® promotes Halloween inclusion for trick-or-treaters with food allergies or other conditions.  

While picking out pumpkins, buying treats, and setting up decorations, consider promoting allergy inclusion by turning teal this fall. Get involved by placing a teal pumpkin on your porch, letting visitors know you provide fun Halloween alternatives to food and candy at your home. Don’t know where to begin? Here we have eight ideas to make sure everyone can enjoy a fun and safe Halloween. 


1. Monster Face Rocks

This idea turns receiving a rock in your trick-or-treat bag into something exciting; sorry Charlie Brown. A project for kids of all ages, encourage your kids to get creative with their monster faces. To get started, check out our Hide & Seek Rock Painting Kit and our Glow in the Dark Rock Painting Kit!
