Going Teal For Halloween?

You will likely notice more teal pumpkins at the front doorstep of houses this year.

The Teal Pumpkin Project® has become a worldwide movement! The program was launched as a campaign in 2014 and has been steadily growing since.

The goal is to create a safer and all-inclusive Halloween for children who have food allergies.

Whenever you see a teal pumpkin in front of a house, this means that the owner is offering an alternative option to edible treats (e.g. small Halloween toys, stickers, pencils, glow sticks, etc.).

To take part in this movement, simply place a teal pumpkin outside your doorstep.

You can purchase a teal pumpkin or just paint one yourself.

Roll up your sleeves… let’s get creative!

We made a melted crayon pumpkin design. You can make one too.


♦ Teal color paint & paint brush, or teal color spray paint

♦ Wax crayon pieces

♦ Glue

♦ Hair dryer


♦ Paint the pumpkin and let dry for 10 min. You can accelerate this process by drying the pumpkin with the hair dryer, on low heat.

♦ Glue the wax crayons on top of the pumpkin, around the stem.

♦ Let dry for 10 minutes.

♦ Position the hair dryer about 1 inch above the pumpkin and melt the crayons using high heat. The wax will start to drip down the side of the pumpkin.

If you don’t have time to make a teal pumpkin, you can place a promotional sign on your door. Free printouts are available through the Teal Pumpkin Project® website. Here’s an example:

And, if you do chose to participate you can even place your home address or home town on their website’s interactive map.
