      I'm SO happy to finally see some Halloween ideas that do not involve food coloring! THANK YOU!!!! I keep all food dye out of our house and offer chocolate or fruit snacks (sans food dye) to satisfy a sweet tooth... yes, even for Halloween! We just toss the stuff they're "allergic to" in the trash & keep the rest. I had to take a moment to thank you profusely for posting these, as I have 7 kids, ages 2-10, who will be thrilled to see some fun treats for our Halloween party! :) I'm not as clever as you guys are on this site, and I would be ever so grateful if you had more ideas for holidays, or any time!, minus food coloring... **hint, hint**
