Safe Trick-or-Treating for Kids with Food Allergies with FREE PRINTABLE

Remember when our parents were freaking out at Halloween about pins in candy bars or needles in apples? Those issues seem to have long past us, but now many of our kids have food allergies, many of which are equally as life threatening. Having parented a kid with a life-threatening food allergy for the past eight years, safe Trick-or-Treating has always been one of the biggest challenges. Safe trick-or-treating for kids with food allergies became so much easier with the introduction of the Teal Pumpkin Project™. Unfortunately, in our area of St. Louis, Missouri, it doesn’t seem to have taken off yet. 

Allergy Safe Trick-or-Treating for Kids with Free Print for your front door.

SAFE TRICK-OR-TREATING

The mission of the Teal Pumpkin Project™ is to encourage homes to share an allergy free, typically non-food, item with Trick-or-Treaters when they come to the door. Some suggestions from the Teal Pumpkin Project™ are small trinkets like plastic bouncy balls, rings, necklaces. Other ideas are pencils, stickers, erasers, or bookmarks. It’s okay to also have candy, allergen free or not, but having an option for kids who can’t have candy for whatever reason, will go a long way in showing your compassion, even if it doesn’t affect your family directly.  (Plus you will score major points with your neighbors, like me!) 

TEAL PUMPKINS

If you don’t have time to paint a pumpkin teal for your porch, you can print out a flyer to display on or near your door (or trunk or booth) from the Teal Pumpkin Project™ or download our Nut Free Teal Pumpkin Poster or Allergy Free Teal Pumpkin Poster for free. 

Not sure if your treat is safe?

Check the ingredient area of the food package. Food allergens are usually written in bold with an alert to consumers. Some of the allergens to avoid are any nuts, peanuts, soy, egg, wheat, milk or dairy ingredients.

Teacher Appreciation Ideas: Teacher Favorites Free Printable

Sometimes it’s hard to come with teacher appreciation ideas throughout the year or at special times like the winter holidays or the end of the school year. Why not grab my FREE PRINTABLE and get to know your teacher a little better so you can show him/her just how much you appreciate them anytime during the year.

Share the print with your child’s teacher and then keep on file for those special teacher appreciation events or just regular days you want to show you care. (I love dropping off her favorite coffee drink, or after school snack “just because”.)

Take it a step further and create a binder of all the teacher’s and staff in your school to live in the office or parent lending library, maybe your school even has a website you could create a library on. 

It’s no secret that I LOVE showering our teacher’s with love. They work so tirelessly and against such odds to give our children the best. If my glee on the first day is any indication of how glad I am to not have their job, I should owe them all the chocolate in the world!

Scripture Art for Boys: Free Prints for a Quick Room Update

We updated our boys and guest bathroom recently. Creating and printing scripture art for boys was the most inexpensive way I could personalize the space and update it at the same time. Taking two favorite Bible Scriptures and a lyrics to a current favorite Christian Song, made creating these free scripture art for the boys meaningful and helpful all at the same time.

What you’ll need to create your own Scripture Art for Boys

  • Download 8.5″x11″ Scripture Art or 11″x17″ Scripture Art
  • Wall Picture Frames in the coordinating size.

The 8.5″ x 11″ prints are full page, you can adjust to size if you want to print them smaller in your printer menu. The 11″ x 17″ prints are what I used and trimmed down to fit my frames.

I love praying these scriptures over our boys:

An excellent musician, he’s also courageous, of age, well-spoke, and good looking; and God is with him. 1 Samuel 16:18

Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe. 1 Timothy 4:12

The boys love the song Good Good Father written by Pat Barrett and Tony Brown and famously recorded by Chris Tomlin and they asked for one of the prints to include these lyrics:

Your a good good father, it’s who you are, and I am loved by you, it’s who I am.

Need a fourth scripture art or art print for your boy’s room? I also made this bathroom reminder (because all kids need bathroom reminders don’t they) to scrub, flush, wash, brush, and comb. 

The blue and grey tones of these free scripture art prints for boys will go great in any white, grey, or navy bathroom. Enjoy!
