As one of the editors for Ranger Rick magazine, I get to create lots of kid-friendly crafts and recipes. Since autumn is my favorite time of the year, coming up with fun activities for Halloween is the best part of my job!
If you’re throwing a Halloween party this year, here are some of my ideas for spooky snacks and creepy decorations. All of them have appeared in the pages of Ranger Rick, and they’re frightfully easy to make, too. Go ahead and click on the images below—if you dare!
