The Benjamin Franklin House will be celebrating Halloween with an hour of activities for little kids (5-11).

Benjamin's landlady Polly Hewson will be on hand to tell some ghoulishly good stories, and there will be a few gruesome games like 'Bobbing for Apples', 'Pick a Pumpkin' and 'Mummy Bowling' (and nope, we haven't got a clue what Mummy Bowling is either!).

Your children will be far too young to appreciate the significance of the house, but it was home to one of America's original Founding Fathers, who helped to draft the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. No doubt Polly will try and slip him into the conversation at some point -- so hopefully your kids will at least come away remembering who he is.
