15 Hauntingly Healthy Halloween Snacks
It’s always a challenge to find treats for the kids’ classroom Halloween parties that are festive but not full of sugar. Family Fun has some creative, and healthy Halloween snacks. We love these apple “bites,” as well as the other healthy ideas they’ve come up with.

Free, Spooky Halloween Music

Back by popular demand and refreshed to include new tracks and themes, Pandora’s Halloween stations offer a fun approach to getting in the spooky spirit this Halloween. The eight new stations deliver a wide range of music to enjoy throughout the holiday – - everything from a mix of upbeat Halloween-inspired hits to a melodic collection of spooky instrumental compilations to a variety of kid-friendly classics – and are accessible via http://www.pandora.com/#!/genres/halloween.

“You’ve Been Boo’ed” Sign and Instructions
We’ve been boo-ing our neighbors for years. Each October, we buy a bucketful of treats for a couple of families, then the kids deliver them anonymously. This involves leaving the treats on the recipient’s doorstep, knocking on the door, and trying not to fall as you dash madly away and into hiding. Squeals of glee are virtually guaranteed. In fact, this is my kids’ favorite Halloween tradition after Trick or Treating. There are a number of Boo printables for this purpose on the Internet, but none as lovely as this one I found for free download here, from TomKat Studio.
