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.

1. Glow Stick Bracelets

2. Sticky Hands!
