Buttons & Figs kids love Halloween,
The best time of the year!
A night to go out, paint your face,
and feel and give out fear!

Here’s a little song to put you in the spirit! Happy October…..Bah-ha-ha-ha-ha…Boo!

We hope you’ll sing along!

Ghost Stories – original spookiness

On this episode Buttons & Figs is proud to feature original ghost stories, for brave kids, by Nathaly and Zoe, students at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona. Nathaly shares stories from her childhood, stories of haunting, stories of mystery and asks you – do you have any ghosts stories of your own? Zoe then shared a story told by her father, about a time when a dead lizard turns a kind ghost into a ghoulish one! Happy, spooky Halloween from all of us at Buttons & Figs, a podcast for kids about playing with words and stories….Bawhahahaha!
