Anything non edible is a good idea. But also oreo dirt cups are safe.

Cheez it mix is peanut free, fruit snacks... there is a little guy in my 4 yr old's class that is allergic to nuts so I am very careful with what I send for my dd's snack as well as for parties. I'm the mom standing in the grocery store reading every.single.label to make sure it is safe to have around him.

Fresh fruit & veggie sticks. You can makes ants on a log w/celery, cream cheese, & raisins instead of peanut butter. Or if there are no sunflower seed allergies, (my DD is anaphylaxis to sunflower seeds!) You can use sunbutter. Or you can check out if legumes are safe, & if so, use soy butter. Are tree nuts out, or are they OK? My DD is allergic to tree nuts, but if they are OK, almond butter, or Nutela is great.

Lots of cupcakes are nut free. Don't do muffins or carrot cake. See if they have to be bought at an allergen free bakery. If they need to be allergen free manufactured, see what Enjoy Life has, as long as sunflower seeds are OK. They are classic allergen dedicated free, though they use TONS of sunflower seeds.

I believe Tootsie Rolls are manufactured in a peanut & tree nut free facility too, but read the package.

Why send food? Break the mold and send little trinkets or a fun activity. Maybe put things like stickers, tattoos, pencils, rings, bracelets, etc. inside of a balloon and hand them out. Each kid gets to guess if a "Fun Fact" about your kid is true or false. If they get it right, they can pop their balloon. If they get it wrong, they have to wait until everyone has had their chance to go. I don't know....just thinking off the top of my head....
