Need some fresh inspiration to celebrate the spookiest day of the year? Here are 10 easy and fun Halloween ideas that your kids your love. Whether you need costume ideas, tablescape inspiration or a few easy recipes, we have you covered.
Allergy-friendly Halloween tips
What about allergy-friendly Halloween ideas? We also have a few. Whether you need a gluten-free recipe, nut-free snack ideas or a healthy Halloween treat, we also included them because we know it can be challenging. My own niece is celiac so I am extra careful.
If you have multiple children with different needs and don’t want to serve them all the same treats, you can section off areas of the table that are allergy-friendly. Please take the time to label the areas or the treats, to make it easier for kids to choose what is safe for them. This is crucial if you are hosting a Halloween party!
I also recommend having separate candy dishes. Cross contamination is a real concern, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.
