As parents, we all have endless things to worry about. And for parents of children with allergies, Halloween can be a real issue. The statistics are staggering—over 5.9 million children (or roughly two in every classroom) have a food allergy, according to a study done by the Food Allergy Research & Education Organization.
Many schools or classrooms choose to host candy-free parties for this reason, but that does not mean your preschoolers will miss out on the fun! Here are ten non-candy treats that your little ones will enjoy. (And bonus, all of these are available on Amazon Prime if you are finding this last minute!)
Complete with a friendly ghost, black cat, mummy and more, this set is perfect for the whole class. And bonus, they glow in the dark!
Adorable and lots of fun, bubble necklaces will be a huge hit.
Stretch their imagination as they make their skeletons dance, act out scary stories and more!
Help little fingers light up the night.
Your teacher will appreciate an extra element for craft time and the kids will have a blast stamping ghosts, bats and pumpkins.
