Nate The Great And The Halloween Hunt

The Halloween Tree 

By:Rad Bradbury
Reviewed on Amazon--"You might want to dismiss this as one of Bradbury's lesser works because of the simplistic plot and writing style but that would be a mistake. What we have here is one of his most important books and one of his best. Taking cues from Dickens, Bradbury writes a timeless tale of Halloween that isn't carried along by dovetailing plottwists or dense knotted prose but simply a quest to save someone and the boundless exuburance of children. I literally finished this while waiting for a class to start and when I had a few pages left and class started I sat there and finished the book. Once you start reading it you can't stop, the momentum of is one of constant motion. And it's not a kids book, sure the themes of innocence are there but also are the more serious topics of death and darkness, as seen through the filters of a child. For all it's length it's a perfect book for the most part and one that deserves to be read every year together with a bunch of people. On Halloween of course." To Purchase

Ghost Flag

Do you like to decorate your yard and home for Halloween? a ghostly guy to add to your creations. For more Halloween ideas stay tuned or you can also visit Kaboose

What you'll need:

  • 1 white garbage bag
  • Large branch
  • Scissors
  • Purple and black craft foam
  • 3 large buttons
  • 6-8 flat marbles
  • White craft glue
  • 3-4 feet of yarn
  • Clear sturdy tape, such as shipping or packaging tape

How to make it:

  1. Lay branch on work surface.
  2. Place closed end of plastic garbage bag near the branch. Insert branch into the bag, poking through the side, running branch through the bag and out the other side (see image).
  3. On the side of the bag that is attached to the branch, use scissors to cut two triangles; these will create the space between the head and arms. (Note: Cut only the two sloping sides of the triangles so that all of the pieces remain attached the bag. See image)
  4. Tape the excess bag that you just cut, attach it to the branch.
  5. Cut two ovals from black foam for eyes, and a simple mouth as well. Glue to the head portion of the bag (see image).
  6. Cut out a simple bow tie from purple foam and glue under smile.
  7. Glue 3 buttons down the front of the ghost’s body.
  8. Go to the bottom of your ghost, which is the open end of the bag, and cut a triangle type pattern to create a jagged edge (see image).
  9. Line up the jagged triangles on top of each other. Glue flat marbles in between a front and back jagged triangle. You do not have to glue them to every one, just put enough in to give your ghost some weight.
  10. Tie yarn to one end of the branch. Wrap around several times to secure well. Tie the other end of the yarn to the other end of the branch, thus creating your hanger.

Druscilla's Halloween

by Sally M.Walker
"Druscilla's Halloween" is a children's Halloween tale designed to appeal to ages 5-9. Its unlikely heroine is an eccentric old witch whose creaky knees keep giving her away on her special holiday when she is supposed to tiptoe through town and scare each child (only as much as they want to be scared). The hilarious activities of Druscilla and her cat Drizzle, not to mention her uncooperative donkey and feather-donating chickens make for a fascinating story of the invention of the magic flying boomstick! "Druscilla's Halloween" is a combination of practicality and magic, of belief and persistence, and Druscilla's determination demonstrates that valuable talents can be hidden in very strange packages. "Druscilla's Halloween" is a delightful October tale. The colorful and humorous illustrations add verve and flair to an already bewitching story." To Purchase

Sandwich Costume

Money is tight and sometimes we have to be frugal in our attempts to make things everyone happy. Here is another fun idea for a Halloween costume. Check out for more neat ideas.

Costume Materials
Foam of varying widths
different shades of brown and green spray paint
duct tape
hot glue
staple gun
Costume Instructions
  • Cut a large bread shape out of cardboard
  • Take a large piece of paper and cut bread shape as well. 
  • Crumple the paper and then spread it on top of the cardboard.
  • Staple the paper to the cardboard.
  • Spray it lightly with spray paint so that it looks toasted. 
  • Spray paint the foam for the crust a dark brown and stapled it around each side of the cardboard slices. I used foams of different colors to represent the different things in the sandwich, such as the tomato, ham, cheese, and lettuce. 
  • For the pickle hat I use foam with ridges already in it and spray paint it green. 
  • Attach some elastic so that it can be worn as a hat.
  • Hot glue and wooden dowel to the top for the toothpick hat. 
  • Attach two strings or shoe laces over the shoulders for them to wear it over their head.

Witches' Night Before Halloween

by Lesley Bannatyne

Reviewed on Amazon--"I loved this book, and so did the children I read it with! The text has a familiar style and tells the story of some creative witches preparing Halloween night for their children. It rhymes and invites kids to repeat lines they like. The theme is Halloween-creepy but it is not scary at all (so it's really child-appropriate) and the kids loved the illustrations.
You've never seen witches like these before- all manner of Halloween beasties are drawn so well and there is a surprise on every page. Great for kids under age 10 or so with wit and humor that will entertain the adults reading the book too! Great for the season and highly recommended!"   To Purchase

Behind The Mask
by Yangsook Choi
Reviewed on Amazon--"Kimin, a Korean-American boy, finally decides to dress as his grandfather for Halloween. But this is more than a mere Halloween story. It is a touching look at how the American Kimin finds a connection with his Korean grandfather, as well as the remarkable role the grandparent held in their cultural ancestry. He had been a mask dancer, the significance of which the author's note briefly explains. Beautifully painted replicas of masks and glimpses of clothing and decor carry the feel of Korea though the book. An exquisitely executed book." To Purchase

Box of Popcorn Costume

Every Halloween my Mom would help us make great Halloween costumes. We were in the girl scouts and other activities so we always had fun things going on at our house when I was growing up. Here's a really fantastic idea for a costume made by Jody Larmour. 

Materials needed:
-box large enough to fit around child
-white & red duct tape
-popped popcorn
-hot glue
-construction paper 

Cut out a head hole and slide box over child. Make arm hole marks. Remove box from child and cut out arm holes. Place white & red duct tape in vertical stripes around the entire box, working around the head & arm holes. Use the construction paper to make a "Popcorn" sign for the front. Hot glue popped corn (do not use fresh popcorn) over the top of the box. Viola! Check out Halloween Costumes on DLTK they have some wonderful ideas.

Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuvler
"A simple word text by Margery Cuvler is wonderfully illustrated by S. D. Schindler making Skeleton Hiccups a highly recommendable and spooky picture book for young readers just learning to sound out their first words. The playful theme of a skeleton plagued with hiccups and the ingenious cure his ghost friend discovers make for a thoroughly delightful tale that is especially in keeping with the Halloween season"~reviewed on amazon

Halloween Night by Arden Druce
"Halloween Night is a Who Done It, for little ones. Each page has a poem, and the answer is found on the following page; however, if you look closely, clues to the answers are painted into the scenes. Halloween Night has a playful rhythm that flows, and the watercolor illustrations are bright, and colorful! Arden Druce, the author, doesn't overreach, and she is wonderfully descriptive, "...who can spin shimmering webs with a swirl and a twist?" For a short, 24-page book, this work carries quite an impact. Altogether, there are only 20 sentences, which takes less than 2-minutes to read, but the combination of good writing, and beautifully rendered artwork makes for a fabulous book. Adults will like this book, because it's fun to read aloud without being scary, or violent."

"I really loved this book, it was great for young children beggining to read! I've read every book by these artists before amd have loved all of them! Abunch of adolescent chidren going on many interesting adventures is wonderful" ~Reviewed on Amazon

"I've seen the movie and the many spoofs so I thought I knew the plot, but when I finally sat down to read the Mary Shelley classic, I was taken back by the intellectual undertones and concept by which the plot of the book plays out. Yes there is a scientist who creates a being and brings it to life. And yes there is a central "monster" that creates havoc. However, it is more than just a scary story. The commentary on the potential risks to society caused by technology can be taken into account today. You also learn that the "monster" is not some mindless being, but there is a back story. I'm only disappointed in the fact that it took me so long to pick up this book to read"~Reviewed on Amazon

  • 1 package (16 ounces) hot dogs
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
  • Dash Liquid Smoke, optional
  • 6 hamburger buns, split
Here's the directions--Cut each hot dog into eight strips. In a large skillet saute hot dogs in oil until golden brown. Add brown sugar,Worcester sauce,mustard and liquid smoke (if desired). Heat through and serve on hamburger buns--Makes 6 servings.

and a craft too--CONE WITCH

This versatile cone witch can be as simple or as extravagant as your child wants it to be. A great project for many different age levels! (**Be sure to visit Kaboose for more wonderful craft ideas.)

Here's what you will need:

  • 1 sheet each black and green construction paper
  • Tape
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors
  • ½ sheet each white and purple construction paper
  • Red marker, paint pen, colored pencil, or crayon
  • Glue stick
  • Gold paint pen
  • Miniature green pom-pom
  • 2 medium yellow wiggle eyes
  • Black fine tip marker
  • Pattern

How to make it:

  1. Roll black paper into a cone shape and secure with tape. Use scissors to trim off excess so that the cone will stand on its own. Save black paper scraps for later steps.
  2. Cut the hat pattern from black paper. Place the hat "donut" on top of the cone and gently slide down. Where the hat brim ends is where you will glue the green strip for the witch's face.
  3. Cut a two-inch wide strip from green paper and apply glue stick. You will need enough green paper to wrap around the cone. The paper will cross in the back (see tips for an alternate method). Glue the strip in place just under the hat brim.
  4. Glue the hat brim in place using white craft glue.
  5. Use the same method as in step 3 to create the belt, but make the width about 3/4 of an inch.
  6. Cut two leg patterns from the white paper and two shoe patterns from the black paper. Draw red stripes onto the white legs then glue the black shoes to the ends of the legs. Use a gold paint pen to draw buckles onto shoes.
  7. Fold the legs in half and apply glue stick to the top halves. Insert legs into the bottom of the cone and press against the sides to adhere.
  8. Cut purple paper into two-inch long strips, about ¼" wide. Glue around the head for the hair and cut a few of the strips into shorter pieces for the bangs.
  9. Glue on wiggle eyes and pom-pom for the nose, and then add a mouth with black marker.
  10. For the final touches, use a gold paint pen to add a buckle to the hat and cut a buckle from black paper (or draw on with a marker) and glue to the belt.

DIY Robot Costume

Hope you have allot of aluminum foil. lolCredit

Books related to our project:


My little girl adores this book, she talks about it at bedtime, we have to draw pictures of all the bugs, she won't stop talking about it. Love it!!


A couple boxes, some aluminum foil, and lots of gadgets make this costume easy and a lot of fun to make.  Using various things found around your home, you and your child will have a great time designing your own robot of the future!

What you'll need:

  • Two cardboard boxes, one large for the body and one smaller for the head
  • Silver spray paint
  • Screening material or silver toile scraps
  • Assortment of buttons, beads, bright costume gems, plastic bottle tops, a spring toy (recommended: Slinky)
  • Craft knife
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Black permanent marker, various colors of paint pens
  • Gray long-sleeved shirt or sweatshirt
  • Gray sweatpants
  • Black gloves
  • Two shoeboxes
  • Tin foil

How to make it:

  1. Cut out a hole in the top of the larger box, large enough for your child’s head to fit through.  Place box on your child, and identify where the arm holes should be.  Remove the box, cut the arm holes, and put it back on your child.
  2. Place the smaller box on your child’s head and mark where his face is.  Identify and mark where his ears are.  Remove the box and cut a rectangular hole large enough for his eyes and mouth to be exposed.  Cut ear holes where marked.
  3. Outside in an open area, with the ground protected by newspapers, use the silver metallic spray paint to cover the boxes completely with paint, and allow it to dry fully .
  4. When the head box is dry, cut a piece of screen large enough to cover the rectangular face opening.  On the inside, use your hot glue gun to secure the piece over the opening, all the way around the rectangle.  Allow to dry.
  5. Using your permanent marker and paint pens, draw dials and gauges on the front of the body to your liking.  This is where your imagination can go wild.  Use your hot glue gun to attach buttons, gems, beads, and spring toy to decorate your robot, placing things in a symmetrical manner across the body.  You can also go online and print off images of gauges or dials, then glue them on the front.  Photos and photocopies of clock faces and calculators from catalogs or magazines can be used, too
  6. Turn your shoeboxes upside down and cut holes in the bottoms large enough for your child’s foot to go through.  Cover the boxes with foil and secure with glue or tape.
  7. When dressing your child, have him put on the black shirt, pants, and gloves, then arrange the boxes comfortably for him. After his sneakers are on, he can put his feet into the upside down shoeboxes and go!

Frankie Piñata

This is such a cute craft. I found it on The Crafty Crow  . They have such neat crafts but this one really stood out for me.

Materials Needed:
Brushes - Script Liner, #1 
Pure Black, 2 oz. 
Titanium White, 2 oz. 
Gunmetal Gray, 2 oz. 
Mod Podge ® Gloss, 4 oz. 
Filbert brush 
Plastic milk/water jug (1 gallon) 
Craft knife 
Masking tape 
Tissue paper – lime green 
Foam paintbrush 
Tacky glue 
Black felt square 
One 2” Styrofoam ball 
Two googly eyes 
Egg carton 

1.Make sure the milk container is clean and dry before starting. Cut a U-shaped flap in the back of the milk jug with a craft knife (parents help with the knife).
2.Fill the jug with candy and tape the flap closed with a small piece of masking tape. This is just to hold the flap down as you add tissue paper, so you only need to use a little bit of tape.
3.Cut your tissue paper into small (roughly 2”) squares and paste them to the jug with Mod Podge. Put as many or as few layers of tissue paper for your desired look, but be sure to cover the opening with two to three layers – this will hold the flap down just enough so that the piñata will be able to burst open when hit. Allow the Mod Podge to dry thoroughly.
4.For hair, cut jagged bangs into the felt and glue to the piñata (use the photo for placement reference).
5.Using the craft knife, slice the Styrofoam ball in half. Press your finger into the dome portion of the ball for the googly eyes. Glue the eyes into the wells on the balls. Glue the eyes to the piñata.
6.Just above the eyes, paint a scar across the forehead and a squiggle on the chin Pure Black and a detail brush. Paint a squared mouth with the Pure Black. Using the larger brush. Paint teeth using the Titanium White.
7.Cut 2 egg sections from the egg carton. Paint them with the Gunmetal Grey. Glue to the sides of the head with tacky glue.
8.Using the tip of the craft knife, poke a small hole in the top back of the piñata. Poke a second hole in the back of the piñata about 1” down from the top. Tape a long piece of yarn to a skewer and thread through the two holes. Tie a knot in the yarn to secure and hang.

It is about Moonlight, a cat that walks the night on Halloween and sees kids trick-or-treating, sees jack-o-lanterns smiling, peeks in a window to see a dog sleeping in his bed, sees raccoons on a porch, the big white moon in the sky. This book is a well worth every penny and I highly recommend for ages 2-5. Enjoy!" PURCHASING INFO

"I can not tell you how many samples I read today trying to find something to buy no luck. That is until now. I read the first story and decided to buy the book.
