The best marker which indicates Halloween is just around the corner? Spooky jack-o’-lanterns burning bright on neighborhood porches, with their evil and crooked grins getting all the more sinister as day turns into night.

It is fun creating your own personalized pumpkin carving design – it could be a really petrifying grin with sharp and pointed teeth, or a friendly old welcoming grin of sorts. Talking about grins on jack-o’-lanterns, here is a fun game for kids to play this Halloween.

All of us have time and again played the ubiquitous ‘pin the tail on the donkey’. Well, why not try something like ‘pin the grin on the jack-o’-lantern’ this spooky season? Simply get hold of a large piece of paper and draw a big circular jack-o’-lantern on it, replete with eyes and nose but minus the mouth. Now blindfold the kids and ask them to stick a piece of black re-stickable tape where they assume the mouth of the jack-o’-lantern to be.

Simple, spooky and fun!
