The Benjamin Franklin House will be celebrating Halloween with an hour of activities for little kids.

Polly Hewson will be on hand to tell some scary stories — 18th-century style. And there will also be a few gruesome games like 'bobbing for apples' and 'pin the spider on the Web'.

Your children will probably be too young to appreciate the significance of the house, but it was the London home of one of America's founding fathers. Benjamin Franklin was right in the centre of things when they struck out for independence, and helped to draft both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
