    I'm creating a halloween bulletin board for our hallway. I want to do a cryptic message--- I'd like it to me math related but not too easy for the kids to figure out....

    Any ideas of a fun math halloween saying or a math halloween tongue twister?? Maybe a riddle.

    Tia

    This does not answer your question, I know. I just had to say, have you made sure you are permitted to do a Halloween display? That would not be allowed at all schools.
