Big buckets of Monsters and Zombies
Remember as a kid when we ran out the door in our costumes, bag in hand and excitement! I remember I couldn't wait to collect my candy, I lived in the country so it was never a lot, but those 10 pieces of candy were like little pieces of treasure. I remember hiding them from my brother and eating only 1 a day to make them last.
Did you know though that not all kiddos feel this same excitement. That over 6 millions kiddos suffer from food allergies! That they can't get in on this Halloween fun :(
It broke my heart to think of those poor kiddos sitting at home or worse yet collecting treats they knew they wouldn't be able to enjoy.
I don't know how many of you heard of the teal pumpkin project, but this year I am proud to be joining.
Wondering what the teal pumpkin is?
Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) is encouraging families to participate in a new Halloween tradition: The Teal Pumpkin Project. This national campaign encourages parents to offer non-food treats for children with food allergies. Participants will mark their intent by placing a teal-colored pumpkin in their yard, informing trick-or-treaters they have non-food Halloween handouts.
Stop letting big buckets of Halloween candy haunt your home…Offer trick-or-treaters a safe and healthy treat that lasts… Big Buckets of Monsters and Zombies!
Each Big Bucket comes with 100 assorted spooky action figures- including zombies, gravestones, humans, werewolves, and even Frankenstein! With over a dozen unique sculpts... down to the poses!
Unlike the average figurine, these menacing monsters stand up on their own, and they definitely put the action in action figure. Each collection includes 12 uniquely posed pieces full of personality. The bucket of monsters includes: a freaky Frankenstein, creepy crawly spiders, howling werewolves, a clawed-at tombstone, and a monster with an appetite for arms. The assortment of zombies includes: an on-the-go zombie girl running with her teddy, creepy corpses escaping from the grave, hungry zombies munching on their brain-food, and a human with a hatchet in his head!
Give your guests a lasting treat. Hand out Big Buckets of Monsters and Zombies this Halloween!
Okay that was copy and pasted. Here it is in my own words.
This is a way to make everyone happy. No one deserves a sad face on Halloween, all kiddos should have the chance to dress up and go door to door collecting treats. And by treats I mean something that puts a smile on their face.
The Big Buckets of Monsters and Zombies does just that! They can still get in on the Halloween fun without fear of consuming something that will hurt them.
Did you know some kids can't even eat foods that may have come in contact with one of the things they are allergic too.
I have a nephew with a peanut allergy. I remember the first time his preschool gave him a PB&J sandwich is was terrifying! He was only 3 and no one knew what to do. I remember the entire family was scared. Now we all take extra steps to make sure he is safe. At parties I always tell family member no peanuts, not nuts dont even use peanut oil when you cook.
Food allergies are scary, terrifying to be honest. As the aunt of a little boy who suffers from a nut allergie I know I will be one looking out for teal pumpkins this year.
I think this is a great cause and I am excited to be part of it!
