Ideas so Good It’s Spooky

The hubs and I are back from our whirlwind trip to San Francisco (thank you all for the fabulous restaurant suggestions!) and I’m realizing it’s very nearly Halloween – eek!  In case the holiday has snuck up on you too, here’s a list of MPMK activities and recipes there’s still time to have some fun with…

  1. Make Oobleck (the perfect activity for Halloween parties)
  2. Read some of our top notch Halloween Story picks.
  3. Start a (last minute) Halloween tradition.
  4. Decorate pumpkins – ideas for the littles and the bigger kids.
  5. Make Jell-O Ghost Treats.
  6. Make an incredibly impressive monster cake (time intensive but actually not very difficult).
  7. Use those Halloween Costumes to Build Brain Power in Your Kiddos.
  8. Make Art with All that Candy.

These posts would be much easier to use if the pictures were links that would go to the sites. I can never figure our which link in the list below is supposed to lead to the cool thing in the picture. For instance, where is the link to the spider web sacks? Or the ghost bottles? Or the brooms?
