On the way home from school one day Charm said, "Instead of trick or treat, I want to say treat or treasure on Halloween." I liked that idea and when I found out about the Teal Pumpkin Project and its aim to raise allergy awareness, I ran with the treat or treasure idea this year.
This pumpkin cut out will go on my door (because I waited to long to pull out the teal spray paint on a real or faux pumpkin:)):

I made a little Oriental Trading Company order a couple weeks ago when shipping was free and there was a gift certificate incentive:
I purchased a set of pumpkin bags, a roll of pumpkin stickers, a couple packs of mini bubbles and some jumping spiders. Lucky worked non stop to fill all of the bags until the bubbles ran out!
The result is a basket full of Halloween treasures that will be fun for all kiddos!
And we will have a 'candy option' at our house too. I used leftover spiders from the Teal Pumpkin Project and leftover kisses from Lucky's Candy Land birthday party to make these bags:
And *fingers crossed*, I hope to write again tomorrow with some new Halloween decorations that we made/purchased/enjoyed this year!
