Check out our Peanut-free, Preschool Halloween Party
Your Reeces Peanut Butter Cups and Snicker Bars used to tempt me every time. Like every. single. time.
But not anymore. The site of a peanut makes my heart skip a beat and the thought of hidden peanut content sends me on high alert due to Grey's peanut allergy. Did you know that 1 in every 13 children have a food allergy and a grain of sand amount of peanut could put some children into anaphylactic shock? The statistics are frightening.
ADIOIS peanut products. Cheers to a reinvented, stylish, peanut-free, Preschool party that will entertain your preschooler so well that they will go home and nap. - I made that last part up. But we can all hope...
The excellent news is that going peanut-free offers a large variety of new food products! There are many peanut-free brands in stores that we are so happy to discover. Continue reading to see which brands we chose to use, and how we incorporated them into our Peanut-free Halloween theme.
Whether it is providing snacks for a school party, or having one at home, here is how you can throw your preschooler (or your peanut-allergy buddy) the most adorable, fun-loving, PEANUT-FREE, Halloween Party.
The Halloween Decorations:
For this party, I teamed up with two incredible Etsy shops. You can find the links to their shop on their shop names.
One Tiny Heart provided our Happy Halloween Banner with teal pumpkin for the Teal Pumpkin Project. The Teal Pumpkin Project is to raise awareness and suggest that homes provide nonfood treats this Halloween. This banner is the perfect addition for our peanut-free Halloween party.
Blossom Stamps provided us with the peanut-free stamp. I may carry this stamp with me everywhere I go! My preschooler looks for this particular symbol on packaged items before he eats. This no peanut symbol is an extremely valuable image for non-readers. I love that we could include this stamp with our party to acknowledge the peanut-free snacks. The stamp reassured Grey that the snacks were safe for him to eat.
Other Preschool Halloween decorations were made by me reusing many items already found in our home. I hope you enjoy these repurposed Halloween decorations as much as we enjoyed making them!
The Halloween Peanut-Free Snacks:
We began the party with a walk-up Yogurt Bar.
Yup, the little preschoolers walked right up and dove into the delicious goodies. Who doesn't love to spread their own toppings on yogurt?
We created the Yogurt Bar because most ice-creams are made in a factory with nuts. I have yet to come across a safe ice-cream. (other than making our own)
Below you find the yummy Peanut-free Halloween treats that our preschooler's couldn't get enough of. All of the snacks we used clearly label their products "peanut-free" on the packaging. ah, such comfort with those words!

Have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
