Scare your kids on Halloween with the hidden-toys trick

Print

As an expectant father, I don't know what the heck I'm doing when it comes to parenting. So when I first heard this suggestion for a Halloween trick for a parent to play on his or her kids, I thought it was a fun idea: "Clear out a child's room and tell them they were robbed."

Coincidentally, I came across a similar prank on YouTube that made me rethink my enthusiasm: YouTube: Brother on Christmas unwraps fake XBOX 360
