This season teal is the new orange! There are more than 3 million cases of food allergies every year. This means there’s a good chance that the mini monster, pint-sized princess, or small-scale superhero trick-or-treating at your door this Halloween may be one of them. McDonald Garden Center has teamed up Suzy Brophy, the author of Macy’s Teal Pumpkin, to help promote non-food treats for trick-or-treaters, such as glow sticks or small toys, as options for food-sensitive children.
Suzy will instruct kids how to mix blue, green, yellow and white paint to create teal and paint a pie pumpkin to display on their front porch. Afterwards, follow along with Suzy as she reads “Macy’s Teal Pumpkin”. Cost $15 and includes teal pumpkin craft and Macy’s Teal Pumpkin book. Supplies include one pie pumpkin, copy of Macy’s Teal Pumpkin book, paint and paint supplies. Come dressed to paint. Recommended for ages 3 and up. Parental assistance is required.
