A great Halloween Story to enjoy with this activity is: Skeleton Hiccups This is a darling book about when a skeleton gets the hiccups and doesn’t know how to get rid of them. My littles were laughing and trying to come up with ideas for how you would rid a skeleton of hiccups! I loved every minute of it.
