I can’t help it!
Don’t get me wrong , I enjoy Halloween but this old fashioned girl is finding it quite hard at the moment…I want it to hurry up and come, so I can throw myself into the run up to Christmas!!!
It’s sending me nuts right now!
I saw a fantastic meme the other day, “I walk around acting like everything is ok, but deep down inside I want to put up my Christmas Tree!”
So, let’s get Halloween prepped,(and then I can unashamedly get on with all the baubles and Christmassy stuff!!)
Pinterest is always my go to place for anything like this just to loose myself for a few hours among food, games, decoration and the diy crafty bits! You know what I mean…everything you would like to do, probably won’t, but glad you saw it!!!
But, here is one thing which can get over looked…
Bring out your teal pumpkins!
As we get stuck in and search for carving ideas, I’m going to do a bit of right turn.
The teal pumpkin... allergy friendly non food treats . Let your trick or treaters know that it’s ok and you do have friendly treats, glow sticks, small toys etc . The child who may never reach into the stock pile of sweets you have ready, just may be the one who can’t because of a food allergy.
The Teal Pumpkin Project landed in the UK from the US, back in 2016 and is aimed to help children with food allergies enjoy Halloween.
So, get that Teal Pumpkin on your doorstep and make everyone feel included, so they can enjoy with each other.
I have picked out a few decorating ideas for you here along with a few cute ideas of what to include.
Have fun and don’t be too spooked !!!
