Beware! The Children's Museum of Houston is oozing with Halloween tricks and treats, ghosts and goblins - and lots of green, drippy, sticky, ooey-goey slime.

KPRC’s feature reporter Ruben Galvan was the first to get a whopping dose of the slobbery monster stuff during a Slime-Off, much to the delight of children (and adults) on the scene at the museum. The morning dousing kicked off the day's web of events during the museum's Monsters' Museum of Houston celebration, continuing throughout the month with scavenger hunts, pumpkin painting and lots of spine-tinglingly educational activities.

The ghoul times roll through the final event of all this monster mayhem with Moe's Monster Mash Bash 4-7 p.m. Oct. 31. Check out the museum's website for a detailed schedule.

And check out the slide show for a really, really good sliming.
