Make a mushroom cap hat, build a pumpkin rocket, visit Earth on a candy-gathering mission, and outsmart a duppy spirit. This is a Halloween party, the SPIDER way.


Learn about monsters from myth and legend, visit Saturn’s rings, and practice some absurd tongue-twisters! Can you imagine paddling in a pumpkin canoe? See all of the creative ways that people use them at the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest and Regatta. Find out why the mysterious witch at the Halloween party carries a mop instead of a broom, and read a Caribbean folktale about a music-loving ghost. This month’s SPIDER is packed with fun things to make and do, from pumpkin rockets to a gross-looking pumpkin surprise, and even instructions to make your very own Miro costume! Enjoy these spooky stories, poems, and stories:
