Halloween Sleepover
(For boils and ghouls ages five through twelve, though I wish the age limit didn't count!)

Wings Center (again!)
(208) 376-3641
Have your kids wear their costume to a awesome sleepover lock-in! The Wings Center is so jam packed with activities, that having a blast is a no brainer! The best part is that their staff is childcare licensed and bonded, so maybe a date night for the parents is in order?
