Eyeball Yo Yo

Yo Yo decorated with paint to look like an eyeball.

Yucky… but funny! Start a Yoyo eyeball spinning for lots of Halloween fun. It’s a simple adaptation of a familiar toy that will make the kids giggle as they prepare for Halloween night.


People love carving pumpkins at Halloween, but few know the jack-o-lantern’s dark history. According to Celtic lore, a miserly old man used to play tricks on the devil and was thus denied entrance to both heaven and hell. Instead, the old man was condemned to wander the Earth and used his lantern to lead people astray from their paths. Source: Fascinate.com – 45 Strange Facets About Halloween.
