While you're out getting Halloween decorations for the house, grab a teal pumpkin and some non - food items to place next to the candy bowls for your trick or treaters.

Teal pumpkins indicate that non - food items like glow sticks, small toys, and other items are available in addition to candy and other treats. These items allow children with food allergies to be included in trick or treating fun.

Bouncy balls
Finger puppets or novelty toys
