This will be another great way to get the kids sugared up on Halloween.  Pancakes!  IHOP will have that free scary face pancake offer going again this Halloween, and there's only one thing the kids need to do to get it.

Kids will have to show up ready to decorate.  That's it.  There's no coupon necessary to get the free pancake.

IHOP is giving kids 12 and under one free pancake on Wednesday, October 31st from 7am to 10pm at participating locations.

Just like last year, they'll provide little dishes of extra goodies to help the kids create the perfect scary face on the pancake before they dig in.  Kids can use Oreos, whipped topping, strawberries, and candy corn to create scary eyes, noses, and mouths.  And if the flapjack face turns out to be friendly and cute that's okay too.  It will all disappear two minutes later anyway.

In Tyler, there's an IHOP at 115 West SW Loop 323.  In Longview there's a location at 203 W Loop 281.

Parents, let's take the kids to IHOP before we go out trick-or-treating and stuff them full so they won't eat as much Halloween candy.  Genius!  Or maybe that will just double the sugar high.

We love news about freebies, and this is another one not to miss.  We'll keep them coming.

Happy Halloween, and we'll watch for your best pancake pics on social media.
