Teal pumpkin project - cards
Have you heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project?
Since many kids have food allergies nowadays, it allows them to still enjoy Trick-or-Treating without worrying about the the treats that come along with them. You're supposed to paint a pumpkin teal (or hang a print out of one by your door) so that trick-or-treaters know you'll participate.
Then, if the child/parent requests it, you provide something different than traditional candy. Ideas include sticker sheets, pencils, etc. We live in an area with a lot of kids, so there's bound to be a couple.
Anyhow, I put together a few baggies of cards if a kid would rather have those. I only did five, figuring we probably wouldn't need more than that. I only put a couple cards in each, but made sure each included a Met and a Yankee given our location.
Not sure if we'll have any takers, but I think it's a cool option, and maybe something I'll put more effort into next year.
