We have several children in our neighborhood with peanut allergies. The joy of trick-or-treating is not the same for them or their parents. Trick-or-treating is filled with danger and disappointment (who wants to receive a scrumptious piece of candy to then be told you can’t eat it?). As much as my family enjoys Halloween, I decided last year to make sure I had fun non-peanut treats for them when they ring my doorbell on Halloween. This year I decided to make these super easy peanut free Halloween treat envelopes. This is a fun kid-friendly craft to make and spend time with your kiddos.
These envelopes are fun to make and easy enough to make with younger kiddos. You’ll need to start with a gift certificate. So visit your local Wendy’s® to purchase a Jr. Frosty™ Halloween Coupon Book* for $1, which benefits the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®. (DTFA) I really like the Wendy’s® Jr. Frosty™ Halloween Coupon Book. It only costs $1 and contains 5 coupons, with 90 cents of every $1 booklet sold between 9/15/14 and 10/31/14 going to benefit the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption ®! The coupons are valid from 11/1/14 to 2/1/15. The DTFA believes that we have a responsibility to be the voice of foster care adoption, so that every child finds a family. As founder Dave Thomas said, “These children are not someone else’s responsibility. They are our responsibility.” The DTFA exist to find homes for children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care in North America. Thanks to Wendy’s® consumers and the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®, 4,000+ children have found adoptive families. That means that for just $1, I’m able to give out 5 peanut free Halloween treats and help a child’s adoption process. What a great win-win-win!

Once you get back from picking up your coupon books, grab some colored card stock (this is a great project to use up some of your paper scraps), a paper-trimmer or scissors, double stick tape, marker and googly eyes. If you have a paper punch and paper crimper grab those, too.
Tape the bottom and sides of the paper shut with double stick tape. If you have a paper punch that is the right shape, punch an opening to make it easier to pull the coupon out. If you don’t have a punch, just use your scissors to cut the opening.
