Non-Food Treats

Another way to protect against food reactions is to shell out fun, no-eat treats!

  • Vampire Teeth
  • Glowsticks / Bracelets
  • Plastic spider and bat rings
  • Halloween themed books

Hasbro’s individual Play-Doh Pots in Halloween colors (photo, right) are sure to amuse. Do contain wheat. Find in U.S.: Walmart, Target, Toys “R” Us, Amazon.com.
