Disclosure: I received these products for free from Oriental Trading to use as a giveaway to one of my readers. My opinions are my own and I was not paid or required to write this review or host this giveaway.

Halloween is just around the corner!  With just a bit over a month to go the stores are stocked with all the spooky decor and lots of treats, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll see I have been getting in the spirit with some crafts and will be attempting to start my daughters Halloween costume very soon. 

Today I’m thrilled to share with you some great non-food Halloween treat ideas, along with a chance to win a bundle of over 33o of them!  Oriental Trading as graciously provided them for the giveaway, and if you haven’t heard of Oriental Trading, they are the go-to source for everything Halloween – from costumes to decor to party supplies to treats – they have you covered this Halloween.  


In 2014 was the establishment of the Teal Pumpkin Project™ which was started by a food allergy Mom first and then adopted more widely by FARE who gave it more attention and coverage which caused the Teal Pumpkin Project™ to explode especially among food allergy parents.  Last year it was really popular and this year it is even more so, with companies like Oriental Trading supporting the cause and working with bloggers like myself to host giveaways of non-food treats.

If you aren’t sure about the movement to non-food treats,  “FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project™ promotes safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies. This nationwide movement offers an alternative for kids with food allergies, as well as other children for whom candy is not an option, and keeps Halloween a fun, positive experience for all!”

At our home, our treats will be food-free and fun!  We’ll have the porch decorated with teal pumpkins (like the one shown below that is available at Oriental Trading,) and we’ll be handing out an assortment of fun non-food treats, from stickers to bracelets and everything in between.  


Last year we did the same, and when children came by to trick-or-treat they loved the non-food treats!   “Awesome,” “Cool,” and “Neat” were many of the responses we heard from them, and I’m pretty sure whoever wins this lot of treats will also be hearing the same, so be sure to enter the giveaway via Rafflecopter at the end of this post.  (And if you aren’t the winner of this giveaway you can purchase all of these directly from Oriental Trading and I’ve provided the links and details to each of the items below to make it easy for you!)

Here’s a look at the 12 items and the teal pumpkin which is also included in the giveaway!
