Fox 34 Corner Kitchen: Allergy-safe options for trick-or-treaters

FARE’s Teal Pumpkin Project helps make sure all children will come home on Halloween night with something they can enjoy. It just takes one simple act: offering non-food treats, such as glow sticks or small toys, as an alternative to candy. Place a teal pumpkin in front of your home to indicate to passersby that you have non-food treats available.

One non-food treat option is homemade Play Dough. 

Play Dough Recipe:

* 2 cups flour

* 1 cup salt

* 2 cups water

* 1Tsp vegetable oil

* 4tsp cream of tartar

* food coloring

Play Dough Method:

1. Mix all the ingredients together in a big pot and then put it onto the stove.

2. At first the mixture is quite runny, but after a few minutes on the stove it forms a dough.

3. Keep stirring continuously; make sure to stir the bottom of the pot so it does not burn.

4. In about 2 minutes your mixture will be like dough.

5. Take it out, allow it to cool and knead like bread a few times.

6. Divide the dough into as many colors as you want and add food coloring!

7. Food coloring goes a long way – so start off with a tiny amount (a tooth pick tip)

8. Done!
