Decorations up? (Not mine)

Ready for the little munchkins? (Not me)

If you are still looking for some Halloween inspiration (like me) or allergy friendly Halloween articles, visit my Pinterest Page for 80+ pins (tips and ideas for the non Pinterest folks!) at

If you’re short on time (like most of us) here are a few of my favorite tips for having a fun and safe Halloween.

  • Feed children first!  Full tummies may find candy less tempting
  • Enforce a “No eating” policy while trick-or-treating
  • Take along epinephrine auto-injectors (nothing different here), cell phone and flashlight
  • Have fun!
  • Give safe treats to neighbors to hand out to your children
  • Institute a Halloween Fairy/Witch or other type of exchange system where the kids trade candy for safe candy, toys, books, gift certificates etc.
  • Have a Halloween or Harvest party instead of trick or treating
  • Trick or Treat for a charity
  • Have a treasure hunt at your house or in your yard with safe treats
  • Have the Great Pumpkin visit overnight and leave safe candy or exchange candy
  • Attend a special theme park, sporting event, aquarium or the zoo around Halloween
  • Watch a movie such as It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
