If you’ve been to any grocery store lately, you’ve likely seen the aisles lined with every sort of candy imaginable. But if you have a chronic illness, you may not want foods that can trigger flare-ups laying around the house. Children also have chronic illnesses, and providing chronic illness friendly treats for Halloween can make a difficult holiday a little happier for them (and their parents). Want some ideas? Here are our favorite chronic illness friendly treats for Halloween.
There’s nothing more delightful for a young kid than bubbles. Whether they use them outside or play with them in the bathtub, they’ll provide all the excitement without the sugar crash.
We like stickers better than temporary tattoos since they can be used to decorate anything! Temporary tattoos can be fun, but if a child has sensitive skin, they could cause irritation. Stick to stickers for a better chronic illness friendly treats and plenty of Halloween fun!
Playdough is a great way for kids to exercise their creativity with no rules attached. Plus it can help develop fine motor skills for younger kids, as well as help older kids be, well, kids again.
Halloween Novelty Jewelry
Kids will have a blast with fake vampire teeth or spider rings. Glow necklaces can also be a fun option, and they keep kids safe and visible in the dark too!
Many stores are carrying inexpensive craft packs for kids to create and decorate masks or other decorations. These can be a great addition to the Halloween sack and give kids something that will last beyond Oct. 31.
Whether you go with stretchy skeletons, sticky hands, finger puppets or even the old classic whoopie cushion, these items are sure to encourage kids to have all the fun with no adverse reactions.
