Kids will also paint a pumpkin-patch mural, join in a costume parade (though costumes are optional) and play a game in which children will create their own ghosts and pin them on a spooky tree to be painted on the wall. 

For each child, there will be treats, a Halloween movie, a goody bag, and lots of Halloween art projects to bring home.
