Puzzle Basics: First, buy a packet of graph paper at your local office supply store. Purchase graph paper with 4 squares per inch, for kids ages 8 and up. By starting in one corner of a paper, you can make several puzzles from a single page. One packet of graph paper can last for months! Always think about who will be receiving/solving the puzzle before you make it. Choose simple words for young solvers and bigger words for older friends
Look for ways to take some of the scare out of Halloween for young, impressionable guests. Printed material of any fun and fall nature will help since the lights need to be bright for these pages to be read. Older guests and teenagers often forget just how terrifying the world can be to the younger ones. Highlight the fun images of pumpkins and scarecrows while minimizing the scarier motifs when young children are present.
