The Magician and the Knight
This story is about Ellie and Arnold, two six-year-old twins who share a wonderful idea: what would happen if all the children suddenly turned into their Halloween costumes? What if the children dressed as wizards, tigers, scarecrows, and baseball players actually became wizards, tigers, scarecrows, and baseball players?

The Wonder of Halloween
David talks about why children actually want to dress in gory costumes of monsters, the undead and the maimed: they are still looking for wonder!
Sparkle Halloween Craft: Mixed Media Flashlights
While these flashlights will not transform children into their Halloween costume characters (at least, I don't think they will), they are handy for keeping little ones extra-visible when trick-or-treating as the sun sets. And they're extra-fun to carry because, in addition to their utilitarian function, they're little works of art.
