The Children's Museum of Houston recently doubled its size so there's plenty of room to play, dance, create and, for the Halloween season, at least, trick-or-treat. The McDonald's Halloween Mansion offers kids lots of safely spooky choices: They can build a 3-D monster sculpture or design a scary face for a pumpkin. If they're brave enough, they can construct a spider hat, complete with eight long legs, the perfect Halloween accessory. On October 31, everything gets kicked up a notch at the McDonald's Monster Mash Bash. DJ Lurch will be spinning fun and creepy tunes, while the Ronald McDonald¨ magic show will stump kids and leave them wondering, "How does he do that?" There'll also be a screening of Cyberchase: The Halloween Howl. No matter when you visit, come in costume and ready for some trick-or-treating. 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. today. Through October 31. For a full schedule, call 713-522-1138 or visit www.cmhouston.org. Free to $7.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 22. Continues through Oct. 31, 2009
