Ghosts, goblins, spiders, and all such gruesome things—that's what Halloween is made of. Halloween is for kids of all ages, and don't we love it.

Decorating for the season with Halloween arts and crafts is just as much fun as dressing up for it. Hanging witches, bats, cats, and spiders in the classroom or home says, "Halloween is coming."
