From graveyard dirt pudding to DIY egg carton jack o' lanterns, this list has everything you need to help the kids get their wiggles and giggles out before Halloween night and make everyone's favorite spooky holiday a scary good time. Trick-or-treating may be the name of the game, but the best part of Halloween is the creativity that comes with it. Just think about how exciting it is to dream up a Halloween costume straight from your own imagination! The same goes for treats. We all have our favorite Halloween candy, but homemade goodies leave much more room for fun...and candy eyeballs. You can never have enough candy eyeballs.
