The Top 20 Best Halloween Activities from Kid Bloggers

By Blog Editor Susan Wells

One of my responsibilities at Steve Spangler Science is to get to know bloggers by reading their blogs, leaving comments and sharing with them. Mom bloggers are incredibly creative. All of us at the Spangler Labs enjoy seeing twists on our experiments as well as new activities and science lessons that come out of the parent blogging community. Here is our choice for the top 20 blog posts for Halloween from some of the blogging world’s best kid bloggers. Not all activities are fully science-related, but all are unique and creative and will give your Halloween some extra fun.

If you see an idea below that catches your fancy, share it with your friends, family and blog readers. Just keep in mind that if you like it, link it. Give credit to the originator of the idea. Then go out and come up with your own unique idea.
