While unconventional, a log truck can make a fantastic Halloween costume. Check out this Halloween log truck costume for you or your child.
This "handy" snack was always my mum's lovely way of trying to give us something healthier than candy on Halloween. It is cute in a spooky way, and that always makes up for the lack of chocolate. Okay, part of the time!
