I hope everyone is having a joyous Halloween. I just wanted to take a few minutes to remind everyone that Halloween is a fun holiday that ALL children should be able to enjoy. You can do this by merely recognizing their differences, being patient and accepting and celebrating each special child. A more specific way to do this is to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project. You can go to their website for in-depth information, but the basic premise is to recognize not all children are able to enjoy candy on Halloween due to allergies and to promote inclusion by providing non-food treats. If you want to participate, I’ve provided a free printable at the bottom of this post. Just print it out and place it on your door! Also, you can spray paint a pumpkin teal or pick up a Teal Pumpkin Project paint kit like this one to alert trick-or-treaters that you’re providing non-food treats.
