Trick or Treat!

With candy, costumes, and more candy, it's hard to beat Halloween when you're a kid. This October doesn't have to be just another opportunity for cavities, though. It's also the perfect time to incorporate education into the season kids love. Try using your child's costume to explain storytelling, or practice geography by mapping out your night's trick-or-treat journey through the neighborhood. Below you'll find a number of activities to make this Halloween a learning experience your kids will never forget.
