Happy Halloween

October 31-November 2, 2014

Halloween falls on a Friday this year, so you and your family can spend the whole weekend celebrating in spooky and fun ways. Start off by creating some adorably creepy crafts that are easy for little hands to make. Once you’re finished, make sure to save some time for some frighteningly fun games and puzzles! Before you send your little goblin out trick-or-treating, serve up an eerily delicious dinner that will warm his tummy and keep him full all night. Finally, don’t forget to round out the weekend with some not-so-scary Halloween movies that are perfect for the whole family.
