Halloween is a week away and this year our family is proud to represent the Teal Pumpkin Project. Now with the help of Oriental Trading, you can too! Many of you probably already know about the Teal Pumpkin Project, but if not here are the basics:
Provide non-food items for trick-or-treaters, and then paint a pumpkin teal and put it in front of your house so your little Halloween guests know you have these special treats. The project started as way to make sure children with food allergies have safe and fun options to bring home on Halloween, but in my opinion this is something that all kids can enjoy!
Runitlikeamom was lucky enough to get some of these non-food items from Oriental Trading. My kids were so excited to go through the box of toys, glow bracelets, and tatoos, and we want to share them with you too! Check out some of our favorites below, and then be sure to comment on the post for a chance to win some goodies of your own.
My girls are 3 and 4 1/2 years old, so these items were perfect for their little hands. I asked them each to choose one, but frankly it was impossible. Their top choices were the mini yo-yo and pumpkin slinky, as well as the porcupine ring and bouncy ball.
Personally, I loved the Halloween stencil bookmarks. My girls enjoy stencils and reading, so anything with a dual purpose is an automatic win.
I have yet to meet a child who does not like tattoos! These came as part of the Halloween Iconic Assortment, but we ordered 2 packs of the Peanuts Halloween Tattoos as well (honestly, I chose these with my husband in mind who insists on watching It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown every year).
These really are just a fraction of what you can get to help support the Teal Pumpkin Project and keep kids safe and happy on Halloween. And companies like Oriental Trading do it with a great variety at a reasonable price.
So now it’s your turn. We’ve got over 300 pieces of Halloween novelties from Oriental Trading to give away to 3 lucky winners!!! Leave a comment below (or on our Facebook page) by 11:59 PM Tuesday, October 25th and we will announce the winner by noon on Wednesday, October 26th. Winners will be chosen at random. Good Luck!
Disclosure: I received these products for free from Oriental Trading. My opinions are my own, and I was not paid to write this post.
