Fright Night might be a little more low key this year, but there are so many ways to get in the spooky spirit. We’ve put together a few ideas in our latest Boredom Busters activity book. The Halloween-themed issue features crafts, snacks and more you can do right from home.
Plus you get to meet Gertie, the kooky custodian from our new Epic Originals book, Creepy Cafetorium: The Gelatinous Twin. She’ll guide you through three different activities, all of which were inspired by Epic Originals series like Bark Park, Bright Family and of course, Creepy Cafetorium. Get step-by-step instructions and a list of materials for:
- Cosmic Costumes
Use a cardboard box or paper grocery bag to make an out-of-this-world helmet.
- Mummy Toast
Whatever your plans, you’re sure to work up an appetite. Make these cute (and creepy!) snacks.
- Trick-or-Treat, Hide and Seek
Skipping the neighborhood trick-or-treating? Try this fun candy hunt in your house or yard!
