Ah, Halloween. I need a peanut-free Halloween party for my preschooler, please!
Your Reeces Peanut Butter Cups and Snicker Bars used to tempt me every time. Like every. Single. Time. It was anything but a peanut-free Halloween party!
But not anymore.
The sight of a peanut makes my heart skip a beat, and the thought of hidden peanut content sends me on high alert due to our preschooler’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.
ADIOS 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.
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 Peanut-Free 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 gifted us 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 non-food treats this Halloween.
This banner is the perfect addition to our peanut-free Halloween party.

Blossom Stamps provided us with the peanut-free stamp.
Isn’t it, darling? I since then have been back to Blossom Stamps for gifts and our Days with Grey logo.
I may carry this peanut-free stamp with me everywhere I go!
My preschooler looks for this particular symbol on packaged items before he eats.
This no peanut symbol is a precious image for non-readers.
I love that we could include this stamp with our party to acknowledge the peanut-free snacks. The stamp reassured my four-year-old that the snacks were safe for him to eat.
This peanut-free stamp is also perfect for class parties! Remember, peanut-free does not only mean any peanuts. It means no peanuts on the shared equipment or shared factory.
Other Preschool Halloween decorations were made by me reusing many items already found in our home.
I took a look around for used cans and jars and decorated them with some extra supplies.
We began the peanut-free Halloween 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. That is not a fun fact. We can special order, but you can imagine the cost of keeping ice cream frozen as it travels.
So which foods can you provide at your peanut-free party?
