- Have your child trick-or-treat for a good cause. At home, have them learn about the organization or cause and then collect money on their candy runs.
- If you have a younger child, set them up at home with candy bingo. This way they will get excited about counting the candy or identifying its color as they go.
- Have your kids research their favorite zoo animal and have them tell you about them while at Wild Zoo Halloween.
- Utilize problem solving skills by having your kids plan the trick-or-treat route. Have them plan the shortest path between points and to home or have them make a path that never crosses itself.
- If you have a tween or older, have them learn about some of the “haunted” spots nearby. Visit them together and have the tween tell you all the ghost story after the trick-or-treating is done.
