With my daughters recent type 1 diabetes diagnosis we are panicking a little about Halloween. It's a stressful holiday for us Moms with diabetics, peanut allergies, gluten allergies and other health concerns. The unfortunate alternative could be just not trick or treating at all, but what fun is that? Instead I started looking into ideas for non-candy Halloween treats. My plan is to provide these for the kids coming to my door and also as a trade-in option for my little diabetic.
These are the perfect Halloween treat!! As the kids are out trick or treating they can be all lit up. I haven't met a child yet that doesn't love glow stick bracelets!
I would have never thought to get sticky hands, but these are my kids favorite thing to get out of 25¢ machines and they would love to get them for Halloween!
I know that I don't necessarily want these at my house as a Mother...but my children would LOVE them!
