Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!
It is a night filled with Spooktacular fun, however some children don’t get to experience this fun, worry free evening the same way you and I get to. This is where the Teal Pumpkin Project comes in—a worldwide movement which offers an alternative for kids with food allergies, as well as other children for whom candy is not an option.Participating is simple. Pick up some inexpensive toys (dollar store is perfect for this), and place a teal pumpkin outside your home to show that you have non-food treats to hand out. Supporting the Teal Pumpkin Project is a simple gesture that can have a big impact.
Begin painting from the top of the pumpkin working your way down the surface. It is easiest to paint the top half, and then let this area dry for 20-30 min, flip over and paint the bottom half of your pumpkin!
Tip: To prevent exposed areas of the pumpkin's flesh from turning brown by applying a film of Vaseline to these areas after the paint has dried!
And voila! You now have a completed teal pumpkin to place out side on your front door step to show that you have non-food treats to hand out.

It’s important to know that a good contractor will never pull numbers out of thin air. The truth is, a lot of time, expertise and a careful calculation of materials and labour goes into figuring out how much a painting project will cost.
