What is it about pirates that kids love so much?
I’ve had to put together costumes for Halloween that ended up getting worn for the next three weeks. At least my efforts weren’t wasted. But the way I see it if you find something that draws your kids in, take advantage of it and our friends at Educents are here to help us do exactly that. There are so many GREAT IDEAS absolutely FREE and a few paid options well worth the money.
