Art Contest: Your Best Halloween Art

Reading this month’s spooky Cricket got everybuggy in just the right mood for a spine-tingling night of Halloween trick-or-treating. Sluggo even felt inspired to plan a hybrid costume. (He’s going as a baseball-playing snail! Surprise!) Pudding suggested that spooky pictures from Cricket readers would be perfect for decorating the clubhouse for the Halloween party. So for this month’s contest, everybuggy wants to see your best work of Halloween art.

Will you draw a scene full of ghosts, goblins, and witches? Perhaps your specialty is haunted houses or graveyards? Maybe you’ll paint kids enjoying a night of trick-or-treating, or even create your own hybrid Halloween costumes (please label them, if you do). Your art might even celebrate the Day of the Dead.

Whatever you choose, everybuggy will be haunting the Cricket Country mailbox with knees—if they have them—trembling, waiting to enjoy your best spooky, beautiful, or just plain fun, Halloween art. Boo!
