Your Questions About Halloween Fundraiser Ideas

Linda asks…

What Are Some Ideas For A Fundraiser?

my class is going on a D.C. trip and we are trying to fund raise money since each person would have to pay $1,500. The trip is in November but we want to raise as much money as possible. I’m wondering what are some ways to raise money, other than like bake sales

answers:

Car washes are big in my area and do well.

Some areas do “rent-a-kid”
It has to be 2 kids at a time, for safety reasons and the tasks have to things safe for kids to do.
Some of the chores kids do are dig or weed gardens,
wash cars,
child care,
run a kids party,
rake leaves, shovel snow – the arrangement is made ahead of time, like the first weekend after leaves start to fall and once a week after that,
Halloween costume creation, and face painting
pet walking and vacation pet care, pet poop yard clean up,
taking pictures at parties,
organizing photos
scanning photos into computer files
setting up websites.

Halloween Fundraiser Ideas?

For my debate team we need to earn 600 dollars. Our holiday to make money is Halloween and we cant think of something to sell. We would sell what ever we pick during lunch at our school. We have about 1000 kids, all in 8th and 9th grade so we need something they would like. If you have any ideas it would be really helpful the best one will get the best answer! We would like to sell what ever it is for 1-2 dollars and we need to make a profit. Please help us!

answers:

We did this thing at my school, its a little bit childish haha but its really fun, everyone did a cake and then did a cake walk…i forget how it worked it was kinda like musical chairs….everyone got a number and like…walked around in a circle to music…ahh anyway…or you can just all do a halloween bake sale. A costume contest is always fun too, and you have everyone pay a fee to be in it. Another idea ( I saw this in Gilmore Girls), they all made baskets, you could each make halloween baskets full of treats, masks, pumpkins, whatever and auction them off. Haha or you could auction yourselves off…win a date with…whoever. I dont know if your school has candy grams but you could do Halloween grams for a couple bucks each, everyone sends them to their friends/bf’s/gf’s etc. Hope that helps!

Michael asks…

What are good fundraisers for churches? And where do I get info.?

Would like to present some fundraising ideas to my church. Where do I get info?

answers:

I think it is wonderful that you are interested in ideas to help raise money for your church!!

I have a few suggestions:

1. A yard sale is always good. It takes work but it’s so simple and a very good way to get things cleaned up around your home.

2. A car wash. Churches, schools, sports teams all use this idea around my town and make good money. Local auto part stores let them use their lots and water for free.

3. An auction. We have a local channel on tv and they host auctions for the above. Donations are made from area retailers etc. And they are auctioned off.

4. Local radio. Allows an amount of time on air for people to call in and donate money.

5. A carnival. One church here does a Fall Festival every Halloween. It’s fun and a safe way to keep kids off the street on such a night. They have cake walks, games, etc.

6. A cookbook. This would be fun and a good way to raise money. Church members could put their fave recipes in and you can sale them for $10.00 easily. Ask banks etc. To let you sale some there.

7. Get permision to do a bake sale on the side walk in front of your WalMart store. That makes $$ here and we live in a small town.

8. A hot dog/hamburger stand. Groups like polital or special education/olympic groups usually have one. You could borrow/rent it and sale a coke & burger or coke/dog for a buck or so. Most area stores will donate the stuff needed. Coke in our area donates all the time.

9. Craft sale. Around the holidays would be a great time for this. Make crafts the kids can help and sale sale sale.

10. Pictures. Many churches here gets someone to take photos. They sale the packages at a higher cost to make their dollars.

11. Do a sock hop. Have a park area that you can use? Do karoke, hula hoop comp., play 50′s music, have a dress up contest, a car/bike show, sale ice cream, burgers, hot dogs.

12. A dance. If you have many younger kids/teens do a dance for them.

13. A chili dinner. This is a good idea when football starts. Get permission to do it before a home game or at a youth football game.

I hope I’ve helped in some way :)

Your Questions About Halloween Food Menu

Ruth asks…

Necessities for a Halloween party?

I am thinking maybe 10 – 15 people, so food, candy, and snacks to buy. Also we’re in 8th grade, so costume, no costume? Any other ideas would be great too!

answers:

Make costumes optional.

You can make scary food if you want. Like this:

Edible Spiders

These are very fragile, but enough stayed intact to give the desired effect…I used a deocrating tube to pipe the icing into spider shapes on waxed paper. They are made from Royal Icing, which needs to be used right away since it hardens to a rocklike texture very quickly!

Royal Icing
16 oz powdered sugar (icing sugar)
3 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
Beat until peaks firmly hold their shape, and the more you beat it, the firmer it gets.

I only made a third of this recipe and I still had tons of icing left over after making two dozen spiders. I used black paste food coloring to get it as dark as I could…

Eerie Eyeballs

Yields approximately 9 dozen bite-sized eyeballs

3 oz lemon gelatin (can be sugar-free)
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup pineapple juice
8 oz cream cheese (can be lowfat/Neufchatel)
1 cup mayonnaise (can be fat-free)

Dissolve lemon gelatin in 1 cup water in double boiler, add marshmallows and stir to melt. Remove from heat. Add pineapple juice and cream cheese. Beat until well blended. Cool slightly. Fold in mayo. If you have a truffle candy mold or round ice cube trays, pour the mixture in the molds and leave to set in the fridge. Otherwise pour into a deep ceramic dish and chill until thickened or firm enough for scooping into eyeballs. Using a melonballer, scoop full balls of the mixture and set aside for decoration. To decorate, use liquid food coloring and an old detail paintbrush and get creative. You will need black food coloring for the pupils. Also, if you are in a hurry, instead of painting the colored irises, you can carefully dip the ball in a small pool of food coloring to approximate the iris, but still paint on the pupils.

For 1999, I found rubber ice cube trays that worked beautifully with much less waste than the melonballer technique. I sprayed the rubber trays with non-stick cooking spray beforehand like you would any gelatin mold, let the gelatin mixture sit in the refrigerator to set, then I was able to carefully pop the eyeballs out to paint them. Some of the eyeballs did break, and they do have one flat side, but that actually works, since then they don’t roll around while you are trying to paint them. Since 2001 I have found that Wilton truffle candy molds are even better, since the swirl design on the top is the right size for the cornea shape on the eyeball. When using the truffle molds, one recipe makes about 9 dozen eyeballs – plenty for a party crowd!

Creepy Witches’ Fingers

Yield: 5 dozen

1 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Icing sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp Almond extract
1 tsp Vanilla
2 2/3 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Almonds, whole blanched
1 Tube red decorator gel
(optional, not pictured)

Gross everyone out with these creepy cookies.
In bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Working with one quarter of the dough at a time and keeping remainder refrigerated, roll heaping teaspoonful of dough into finger shape for each cookie. Press almond firmly into 1 end for nail. Squeeze in centre to create knuckle shape. (Accompanying picture showed long rolled shape with bulge at centre for knuckle; you puff it out rather than squeeze it in.) Using paring knife, make slashes in several places to form knuckle.

Place on lightly greased baking sheets; bake in 325F (160C) oven for 20-25 minutes or until pale golden. Let cool for 3 minutes. Lift up almond, squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed and press almond back in place, so gel oozes out from underneath. You can also make slashes in the finger and fill them with “blood.”
(ed. Note – I opted not to go for the bloody effect as you can see in my picture above, and my guests were still grossed out! – Britta)

Remove from baking sheets and let cool on racks. Repeat with remaining dough.

Brittle Merangue Bones

3 large egg whites
1/4 tsp. Cream of tartar
1/8 tsp. Salt
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line cookie sheet with brown paper bag or parchment. In a medium sized bowl at high speed, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt till fluffy. Gradually beat in sugar. Add vanilla. Place in pastry bag fitted with a medium plain piping tip. Pipe 3″ bone shapes onto parchment or brown paper bag. Bake 1 hour until set. Turn off oven, dry in oven 1 hour. Makes 4 to 5 dozen small bones.

(back to top)

Savory Brain Shrimp Spread

1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
8 ounces Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
1 (.25-ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin, softened in 1/4 cup water
1 bunch green onions, chopped
3 pounds cooked shrimp, coarsely chopped
(or 1 pound crab meat)
1 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Tabasco or creole seasoning to taste

Heat soup, undiluted, and mix in the cream cheese. Stir in softened gelatin and blend well. Fold in remaining ingredients and pour into a lightly-oiled mold. Chill until firm and serve with your favorite crackers.

(I originally found this recipe for MardiGras 2000, which was quite yummy. When I got a brain mold for my birthday – can you tell my friends know I love Halloween? – I started thinking of what I could use for making a brain. Since the brain mold is only about 3 cups, I halved this recipe except for the amount of gelatin, left out the green onions, and finely chopped the shrimp into more of a paste for the sake of making it look more smooth-textured like a real brain.)

(back to top)

Thick Sugar Cookies

2 cups margarine or butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
6 cups flour
3/4 tsp. Salt
4 Tbsp. Milk

Divide dough in half (or sixths). Chill 1 hour. Roll out half of dough 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Use greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit/190 degress Celsius for 12 minutes. These can be frosted. Makes about 5-6 dozen standard-sized cookie cutter shapes.

(back to top)

This was the frosting used on the sugar cookies for 1998…
(…also on the gingerbread cottage…)

Kathy Henricks’ Buttercream Frosting

1 1/4 cup Crisco shortening (only use Crisco)
2 lbs. Powdered sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp Karo light corn syrup
1 tsp butter flavoring
1 tsp vanilla

Beat 5 to 10 minutes with a power mixer until very smooth. Water down a small amount for a crumb coat if frosting a cake. After 20 minutes (when set), frost with remainder of frosting. When set, use paper towel or typing paper to set desired surface texture. This is fluffy enough to frost easily, yet stiff enough for keeping its shape for decorating.

(back to top)

Pumpkin Pie

2 eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup sugar
1 1 lb. Can pumpkin(2 cups)
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Ginger
1/4 tsp. Cloves
1 2/3 cups evap. Milk(1 can)
1/2 tsp. Allspice

One 9 inch pie crust, slightly cooked. (or 10 1/2 inch). Bake in hot oven (425 degrees) for 15 minutes. Keep oven door closed and reduce temp to moderate (350 degrees F/180 degress Celsuis) and continue baking for 45 minutes or until table knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. May be eaten cold or at room temperature and can serve with whipped cream.

(back to top)

Salami and Cream Cheese Wraps

miniature sweet pickles
cream cheese
sliced salami
toothpicks

Cut the miniature pickles into fourths lengthwise, so that the pickle slices are still roughly the same length as the salami slices. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on a slice of salami, wrap around a pickle slice and close with a toothpick.

(back to top)

Jack-O-Lantern Cheese and Crackers

your choice of cracker (Ritz is pictured)
orange cheese, preferably already sliced
a contrasting layer (I used white cheese slices)

Cut the slices of cheese into cracker-sized squares. Cut the orange cheese into jack-o-lantern shapes by hand, or use a miniature cookie cutter if you’re lucky (I wasn’t lucky, so I cut all of these by hand). Lay the contrasting layer on the cracker, then top with the jack-o-lantern slice.

For 1999, I used a cookie stamp on melted American cheese while it was cooling in a flat cookie sheet. After it cooled thoroughly, I trimmed away the edges and had what you see above with the purple background.

(back to top)

Tricky Crab Triangles

one stick (1/2 cup) melted butter
one 6 1/2 oz can crab meat
1 small jar (approximately 5 oz) Kraft Old English cheese
1/2 cup mayo 1/2 tsp. Garlic salt
one package split English muffins

Combine first 5 ingredients, spread on muffins, put on cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen, cut into triangles (eighths). Put in plastic bag, return to freezer. When ready to use, put under broiler until bubbly.
(as you can see, these really aren’t so tricky)

(back to top)

Spooky Sandwiches

sliced bread of your choice
sandwich filling of your choice
condiments of your choice
Halloween cookie cutters

Make your sandwiches however you’d like, but try to have ingredients that will stick together and not fall apart after the sandwiches have been cut. The metal cookie cutters work best, since not all the plastic ones are as tall to cut through all the bread and fillings.

For 1999 I used turkey and cheddar cheese, ham and swiss cheese (with just a little mayonnaise to moisten the bread), and herbed cheese spreads for my variety of sandwiches. I used a pumpkin cookie cutter for the ones shown above.

(back to top)

Creepy Crispy Crunchies

3 Tbsp margarine
4 cups miniature marshmallows
(or 10 oz large marshmallows, about 40)
6 cups rice crispy cereal
orange and brown Halloween M&Ms (about 6oz)

Melt margarine in a large saucepan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add cereal and stir until well coated. Add the candy and mix until candy is evenly mixed. Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with waxed paper. Using a buttered spatula or waxed paper, press the mixture evenly into a 9×13″ pan. Cut into squares when cool.

For 2000, since I got a jack-o-lantern lollipop pan for my birthday, I made the KrispyPops pictured above instead…

(back to top)

Deviled Eggs

hardboiled eggs
mustard (can even be dijon or other flavored mustards if you like)
mayonnaise

To hardboil the eggs, put the eggs in a large saucepan, and fill with water until the eggs are fully covered. Put the full pan on the stove and bring to a boil over meduim heat. As soon as it reaches a rolling boil, remove from heat, still covered, and let stand covered for 20 minutes. As soon as the 20 minutes is up, run cool water over the eggs so they stop cooking. Once cool, refrigerate until ready to use.

Peel the hardboiled eggs and slice in half lengthwise. Gently pop out the yolks into a separate bowl. Once all the yolks are in the same bowl, add some mustard and a little mayonnaise to taste just so the mixture sticks together. Blend with a fork, then put the yolk mixture back in the hollows of the egg halves. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Decayed Corpse Chips with Entrail Salsa

blue corn tortilla chips
coffin
salsa

This isn’t so much a recipe as it is a creative display. Arrange the blue corn chips in a coffin in the shape of a long-dead corpse. The natural blue corn chips have almost a dusky shade of brown in them that hints of decayed skin. Serve with a nice blood-red chunky salsa as accompanying entrails.

For 1999 I got more elaborate. I found a larger coffin that happened to fit a rubber skeleton I have had for years. I lined the coffin with crushed velvet, propped up the skeleton, arranged the chips around him, and set the crystal bowl of “entrails” between his calves…yummm…

Spicy Bat Wings

barbecue chicken wings (buffalo wings)

This is another creative description of a familiar dish. Since I am not one for extremely spicy food, I got honey BBQ wings, but they sure are yummy…

Dried Cherry Scabs

dried cherries
(could adapt and use dried currants or dried cranberries)

Yes, another nasty name for an otherwise mediocre dried fruit…but call them “scabs” and all of a sudden no one will eat them!

Witches’ Brew (1998)

500 ml (5 parts) Midori
800 ml (8 parts) vodka
2 liters (20 parts) ginger ale
200 ml (2 parts) water

(or)

Witches’ Brew (2000)

(this one pretty much fills a 12-quart cauldron)

four 48 oz cans pineapple juice
one 96 oz bottle orange juice
four 2 liter bottles lemon-lime soda
one 1.75 liter bottle vodka
one 1.75 liter bottle rum

All measurements are approximate. Adjust to your own taste.
Mix well. Pour into your cauldron, preferably with chunks of dry ice to create the bubbling steam effect.
(Be careful NOT to drink or eat or in any way come in direct contact with skin with any chunks of dry ice -
you can get burned by the extreme cold!)

Bleeding Human Heart
(inspired by Penn & Teller’s Bleeding Heart)

First of all, find your mold. I found mine a couple years ago at Spencer’s Gifts around Halloween season. It came with a very similar recipe, but not any instructions to make it bleed. Second, thoroughly wash your mold, especially all the detail where the veins are. When completely dry, spray the mold with non-stick cooking spray. You’ll see below that Penn & Teller used a Valentine’s Day-style heart-shaped cake pan…I think using the human heart mold improves on their concept one-hundred percent…!

My human heart mold isn’t large enough to handle the whole Penn & Teller recipe, so I halved the following recipe…I also altered the blood by using raspberry syrup and Chambord raspberry liqueur instead of the grenadine, since I was using raspberry gelatin. After the mold is set, I turn out the heart and set it on a crystal pedestal plate and use food coloring and a small brush to accent the veins. I even use red food coloring to shade the contours (it really does make a difference). I use my large Psycho-style butcher knive to sever and serve, as they suggest below.

Otherwise, I have left the original Penn & Teller recipe intact below…it’s rather long, but VERY descriptive and detailed…

Penn & Teller’s Bleeding Heart
Penn & Teller’s How to Play With Your Food© 1992 by Buggs & Rudy Discount Corp.

The title says it all. It’s the perfect coup de grace for your intimate dinner at home. As your guests sip their coffee, you unveil a glistening pink gelatin heart on a pedestal cake stand. Then you whip out a carving knife and stab it. Dark, gooey blood issues majestically from the wound. You cut dainty slices off the lobes of the heart and flip them onto dessert plates. You hold each portion under the oozing gash until it is nicely sauced with gore, add a dollop of whipped cream, and serve.

INGREDIENTS

4 cups of water
four 3-oz. Boxes or two 6-oz boxes of peach (pink; think of lung tissue)
or strawberry (redder; think of livers and hearts) gelatin dessert mix.
4 envelopes unflavored gelatin
one 12-ounce can unsweetened evaporated milk

1/2 cup grenadine syrup
1 cup light corn syrup
one small bottle (0.3 fl. Oz.) red food coloring
3 drops blue food coloring
one 1-gallon food-storage bag (the plain kind without the zip closure)
6 1/2 cup heart-shaped gelatin mold or cake pan

PREPARATION

Boil the water. Put the packaged gelatin dessert and unflavored gelatin in a bowl and pour the boiling water over it, stirring constantly. Cool to room temperature (very important or the next step may present problems). Stir in the condensed milk. Note how it already is acquiring the color of freshly skinned flesh.

Pour the mixture into the gelatin mold. Cover the bottom of the mold (this will be the top when you serve it) with a layer about half an inch think. Refrigerate until it gels firmly.

Meanwhile, prepare a nice bladder of blood. Stir together the corn syrup, grenadine, and food colorings (we do it right in the measuring cup to save dish washing–every erg saved in preparation is an erg one can use to enjoy the Payoff). For the bladder (the bag that keeps the blood together inside the mass of gelatin) take the gallon-size food-storage bag and turn it inside out. Pour the blood mixture into one corner of the bag and twist it closed so that no air bubble is caught between the sauce and the twist. Tie a knot in the twisted plastic. Adjust the position of the knot so that when the bag lies on the counter, it’s about 1 1/2 to 2 inches high, and tighten the knot. With a pair of scissors, snip off the frilly extra plastic outside the knot.

When the gelatin on the bottom of the mold is stiff and firm, position the bladder of blood in the mold, with the point of the bag just inside the point of the heart. Make sure there is at least 3/4″ of space between all sides of the bag and the walls of the mold (this will ensure that your guests don’t see clues ahead of time). Pour in the remaining gelatin until the mold is as full as you can handle. Don’t worry if you see a little of the blood-bladder grazing the surface of the gelatin, as longs as it doesn’t project too much; the side you are looking at now will be the bottom when you serve it.
Refrigerate until gelled firmly to the texture of fine, lean organ meat. It takes about 4 hours.

To unmold, put about 2 1/2 inches of hot, but not boiling water in your sink. Set your mold in the water so that the water comes just below the edge of the mold for 15 to 20 seconds; the time depends on the thickness of the mold pan. Remove the mold from the water, and run the blade of a knife around the edge of the gelatin. Invert your serving platter, ideally a white pedestal cake plate, on top and hold it firmly in place. Then use both hands to turn over the mold and the plate. Remove the mold; you may need to tap or shake the mold slightly to free the gelatin.

PRESENTATION

The blood looks prettiest when it flows over white plates, doilies, and table linen, which it may stain permanently–but what the hell, it’s the effect that matters. To serve, use a nice, big Psycho-style chef’s knife and stab the side of the gelatin about one third of the way up from the pointed end of the heart. Twist the knife slightly, and blood will start to ooze out. Bare your teeth like a Marine jabbing with bayonet, and widen the wound. When the blood is coming at a good slip, grab a dessert plate, and cut a slice from one of the lobes of the heart. Flip it onto the plate, and drizzle it with blood by holding it under the edge of the pedestal. Add whipped cream and serve.

This dish delights all five senses:

Sight: red, glossy, and elegantly surreal when the blood starts to flow.
Taste: sweeeet.
Smell: classic artificial-fruity
Touch: cold and wiggly.
Hearing: the screaming of guests.

Halloween Party Ideas Needed?

Im throwing a halloween party for my six and seven year old cousins. Ones a boy and ones a girl. Im not sure what types of activites, food, and all that to do. Any ideas would be great. I want to do tons and tons of different little stations. And we have over 5 hours for their party. And do you think saying parents can stay and watch if they want to is a bad idea?
Dont have a tv so dont tell me to watch anything on tv to get ideas. and i need things as soon as possible casue im leaving to go get some supplies in about an hour. Thanks so much everyone. YOu are all wonderful.

answers:

Creating a menu like, a red punch called, vampires brew, A rubber glove frozen ice inside will give it little more interest. Cup cakes that have candy worms inside. Macaroni and cheese for brains and stuff once you get started you’ll can probably go on for ever. Finding the foods you want to serve and making little sign that says what spooky name should be.

Best costume, nose on the witch, scariest sounds they can make contests.

I find it best to involve the kids a bit asking them what about…
The music in the back ground and the decoration makes it complete.

Oh and yes parents should be able to stay, how ever they have to become one of the kids. (a must rule)

Fun Word Play Halloween Costumes

Pass The Pumpkins
Have kids sit in a circle and pass small pumpkins or gourds when the music is playing. When the music stops the child without a pumpkin is out continue until there’s a winner.

Build A Scarecrow
Form groups and have a variety of old clothes, pillowcases for heads, markers and newspaper. Groups have 20 minutes to create. Give prizes to the scariest or funniest, then place outside.

Build A Scarecrow Game – #2
Divide your back yard into two sections by yellow tape (maybe 2 rooms or a basement if inside). Before your party, get together 2 sets of 6-10 items that can be used to build a scarecrow. Sample items: Hat, corn stalks, jeans, string… Now hide these items in order to make a scarecrow around each half (one side for each team). For small children you may want to play this game during the day and to make the game harder play it at night. When playing at night send out team member with a pumpkin with a pumpkin light or a candle inside), have one person from each team (starting at same time) go on a hunt to find one item. After all items are found, the team has to be creative and construct a scarecrow, using all items. The team that finishes their scarecrow first, wins.
Thanks Lisa

Ghost Hunter
Game for teams:
Get lollipops, ribbon, paper, tissue paper, and select 5-10 Halloween terms. You may want a styrofoam base to stick the ghosts into during the game.

Divide party guest into Ghost Hunting teams of 3-5 kids per team, the number per team may be based the ages of the kids.

Each team is given clues to find ghosts that can be hidden outside or inside. Note: Don’t place all the ghosts together or the kids will grab the first ghost they see rather than find the ghost you want them. Also, tell them not to untie the ghosts until after the game is over. So send them off to different areas. You’ll want 1 ghost per guest or a specified number per team, but have extras so each child gets a ghost.

Each ghost is a lollipop covered with tissue paper, tied with ribbon with a letter written on the ghost. Use a marker a add eyes and a mouth to the ghosts.

Send the kids with clues off to find ghosts. If young children have an adult go with them for safety and to assist if they don’t understand the clues. Example Clues: I live near the large tree in the backyard or At night I come out from under Mr. Wilson’s favorite chair. Fun, increase difficult with age.

Each team will return with 3-5 ghosts with letters. The corresponding letters will spell or help spell a mystery word that relates to Halloween. See the 2 versions below:

Young kids: Use words where all the letters are given: bat, witch, cat, hat, broom, ghoul etc… One team at a time, take the letters and mix them up. The Ghost Hunting team whose ghosts are being used get the first try to guess the mystery word. If they guess the word correctly they get a point, if they miss the word the other teams have a chance to get a point. Have them raise their hand if they know the answer, 1 guess per team. If no team guesses the word, then a simple clue is given and the process is repeated until the word is guessed. If there is a tie have a tie-breaker mystery word that is a little harder. Offer a small prize for the winners.

A little harder: In this version the letters on the ghosts only give clues to the mystery Halloween word. Word Examples: pumpkin, headless, horseman, haunted, goblins, Sleepy Hollow, etc… Arrange the letters in correct order leaving spaces for missing letters. The Ghost Hunting team whose ghosts are being used get the first try to guess the mystery word. If they guess the word correctly they get a point, if they miss the word the other teams have a chance to get a point. Have them raise their hand if they know the answer, 1 guess per team. If no team guesses the word, then a simple clue is given and the process is repeated until the word is guessed. Again have a tie-breaker word just in case and offer a prize for the victors.

The Halloween Story Game
Each year we have a huge Halloween party for our kids, one year, we sent the beginning of a ghoulish story in with the invitation and the party guests had to finish the story. We read all the endings at the party and then voted on for the best, weirdest, and scariest. I still have the ones the kids did and love to reread them at Halloween. Even though its been 20 years. Hope this will help others out there have a spooky Halloween.
Thanks – Judy – Vernon, NY

The Hanging Tree -
Supplies – 13 Apples (12 red and one green) you will need extras, String, Blindfold, and a tree branch. Tie each of the apples to a tree so they can swing freely. To keep observant kids from memorizing where the green apple is just loosely tie the strings together.

How to Play – Take a child and tell them to close their eyes and make a wish. As they do you blindfold them. Once blindfolded you spin them around and say this rhyme with them.

13 Apples hanging from a tree,
12 dark red and one bright green
blindfolded, spun around, and then set free
Is that green one meant for me?

You then release the apples and point the child in the right direction. They then will stumble about and pick an apple. If they get the green one their wish will come true! Before the next child goes, replace the apple and move the green one. (I am planning on letting each kid keep the apple they pick). If you want you can place a tag with a number on each apple, then each number will correspond to small gift or prize. Thanks – Krag Halloween

Guess The Ghost – Great for Young Children
Have one child leave the room. Then take a large sheet and have a different (child) stand and hide under the sheet. Mix up the remaining children in the room and then allow the child who left the room to come back inside. That child has to guess who’s the ghost, by process of elimination they need to figure out which child is hiding under the sheet. Then that “Ghost” goes out of the room and a different child becomes the new ghost, mix up the remaining children and repeat until all of the children have had a turn being the ghost.

To Young For Carving – Try This
Have children make paper mache pumpkins out of newspaper and balloons. After the paper mache has dried pop the balloon and have them paint the paper mache pumpkins orange and draw faces on them and then give prizes out for funniest, scariest, etc. Etc… Thanks – Jenny in Indiana
Other Options:
- Use real pumpkins and have the kids draw or paint the pumpkins
- Use gourds and use Mr. Potato Head eyes, lips, and noses to decorate

Halloween birthday party ideas?

My sister’s birthday is on Halloween, and she wants to have her birthday party that night.

She’s turning 15.

It’s a costume party.

We’re looking for game ideas, food ideas, prizes that would be cute for best costume, winner of games, etc.

answers:

Alright, I have tons of suggestions for you. So hopefully you’ll like my ideas!

Games: These are some great games I found for you that you’ll like, such as “Spooky Walk”, “Pumpkin Bowling”, etc: http://parentingteens.about.com/od/halloweenfun/a/halloween_game.htm
(You could also make a haunted house or a halloween maze)

Snacks/Foods: I’ve found so many great homemade Halloween treats out there, I had to share some of my favorites with you here.
Since your planning a Halloween party, I’ve included some great appetizer snack, and treat ideas. (These are my favorites, but you can find the rest here:

Tip: Serve pizza, mixing 6 tbps. Of parmesan cheese with ten drops each red, green and yellow food coloring and put over pizza for a “moldy” look. Also serve punch in a witch’s cauldron with dry ice, and dessert, such as pumpkin pie or pumpkin ice cream with candy corn sprinkled on top.

Drinks: I searched on google and could only find alcoholic drinks, but I have a few original suggestions for you. Make 5 – 10 pitchers of blue (or your preferred) kool-aid, and put it in a witches cauldron. Put dry ice in it to add a ‘steaming look’. Put a caution on the witches cauldren to alert that there is dry ice in there, so watch out. Also keep a variety of sodas on hand.

Betty asks…

Halloween costume ideas for mom and 1 year old son?

I’m trying to find costumes for me and my 1 year old son to coordinate this Halloween. He is a year old and I am 21. I do not want the real flashy women costumes, but rather something cute to be remembered. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated and a best answer will be awarded 10 points! Thanks so much!

answers:

Copied from families.com
My favorite is the animal and farmer one. That would be really easy. The animal costumes are super easy to find and for the farmer, all you need is a flannel type shirt, jeans and a hat. Seems fun and easy! He doesn’t HAVE to be a crawling baby either…

1. Leaf and pea pod

For cutesy goodness for a newborn, you just need to dress in green. Get a hat and stick a large felt leaf on top of it. Find an old sling or borrow one that someone no longer needs. Dye it green using lime Kool-Aid in boiling water. Add three circles of green felt to baby’s outfit, and voila: mama is the vine, baby is the pea in the pod.

2. Mom and baby gorilla

This one goes well with a baby in a front pack facing outwards. Get a curly wig, face makeup, and gorilla gloves. Turn yourself into a gorilla. Place a hat on baby that covers his ears and turn him into the baby gorilla. Socks on hands work well as paws and can be easily decorated.

3. Flowers in the garden

This is another costume that works well for a baby in a front pack. Go to town on any fancy leaf and foliage shirts that you might have. Get a hat for each of you and attach stiff foam or thick felt petals to the hats. Voila! Two flowers in the garden!

4. Farm animal and farmer

Yes, this requires a straw hat or two. This one is good for the baby who is crawling, since crawling shows off a cute animal tail! Last year my daughter was a pig: take a pink footed onesie and adorn it with paw prints and the word “oink”. Add thick felt ears to a hat, and add a curly tail to the back of the onesie!

5. Monster with two heads

For those who want to be SCARY this Halloween, how about a two-headed monster? A Purple People Eater would work well. Dress in purple with a few play “people” in a frying pan hanging from your front. Add scary purple wig and antennae and a single eye on your forehead. Add baby on the front or back, also dressed in purple. The scary monster is complete!

William asks…

Is it bad to wear a black dress for Halloween, I’m going as a princess?

I’m going as a 21st century princess this Halloween, my dress is knee length, black with a campaign pink sash under the bust with a rose on the side…and silver polka dots all over the bottom…Is that kinda dress to not princessy? Also, does anyone have good eye makeup ideas?

answers:

I think the dress sounds great. For the make-up maybe go bold with the eyes, smoky, liquid eyeliner and so on. Maybe just a little gloss on the lips. Don’t forget nail polish, something sparkly. Hope you enjoy your party.

Your Questions About Halloween Masks

Paul asks…

possessed halloween mask?

I had a halloween mask a number of years ago that was very strange. It was a rubber skull mask that I swear was cursed somehow and I’m normally not a believer in these things, but I put it in a suitcase when I was done wearing it one night and went to take it out of the suitcase and it was locked. So I put the suitcase under my bed and I’d hear noises under my bed. I got scared and put it under the stairs in the basement and I heard terrible noises coming from the basement a couple days later. So then I’d had it! I used pliars and tore the lock off the suitcase and took the mask out and burned the mask. I did this by throwing it in the fireplace and then I saw red like blood coming off the mask. The mask was originally skin colored light tanish color. Do you think the mask was possessed?

answers:

I think the mask you had inherited the soul of your deceased car, the tiburon (i’m assuming that’s where you get you screen name). It was calling to you saying, “You shouldn’t have put me in the lake. You shouldn’t have put me in the junkyard. You shouldn’t have put me in the crusher. You shouldn’t have sold me. You shouldn’t have traded me in.” (or whatever you did with it).

Your car is reaching out to you and now you have completely severed that connection. I don’t want to drive with you. Lol ;-)

Donald asks…

are vinyl (halloween) masks waterproof?

answers:

If you have a vinyl mask – then yes it is waterproof – meaning that water cannot penetrate the material (vinyl). However, that doesn’t mean that any additions to the vinyl are waterproof, such as paint, hair etc. So getting your mask wet could result in flaking or pealing paint. The same applies for latex masks but not rubber or rubber blends. If you have to get your mask wet it’s best to test a small area or use a waterproof spray sealant. Good luck and have a great Halloween!

Chris asks…

Copyright on a halloween mask ?

Im in a band, and im the guitarist and i want to wear this certain mask on stage every show i play. What do i need to do so i don’t get in trouble. I tried to email the store that sells it, but they never replied, and you can by the mask in many stores, its not a mask from a movie or anything like that. what do i do.

answers:

If you purchase the mask from the copyright holder or someone under a license from the copyright holder, then you are free to do with the mask as you choose, unless there is some agreement in place to the contrary. In copyright law, this is known as the first-sale doctrine.

Http://www.ipwatchdog.com/first_sale.html

Sandy asks…

Where can I get a Mars Attacks! Martian Halloween mask?

I’m looking all over the place for one. The only one I found was $125 on eBay and was in the movie. Too expensive. Anyone know a place where I could get one? I think the most I’d pay would be $50.

answers:

A company called Cinema Secrets has come up with a great idea for Halloween. Known for their extensive mask and props line, they have produced an oversize Martian mask you can wear. They have also created a life-size (5 foot tall) posable Martians that looks like it came directly out of the movie! They also have a non-posable (“autopsy”) Martian as well as a nice Martian display bust. The mask sells for about $40 to $60; the bust sells for $100 to $120; the life-size Martian sells for around $400 to $600! If you don’t want your Martian to go naked, you can buy him a blue or red sequined cape for about $300. You could buy the mask and cape for yourself, and start your own Martian invasion!

John asks…

It is okay to go to Halloween Horror Nights while I’m 7 months pregnant?

My fiancee really enjoys Halloween Horror Nights, and while we didn’t think it would be a good idea to go, she wanted to make sure.

She wants to know if it would be okay to go to Halloween Horror Nights, which is when Universal Theme Park is covered with haunted houses and whatnot. She would be in a wheelchair, but our main concern is if her being scared and screaming would have a bad affect on the baby.

answers:

Does she get scared easily?
I’m sure it will be fine, as long as she doesnt go on the rides.

I will be 37 weeks during halloween, and i’m still going to a 6 flags fright fest. I’m not in a wheelchair, and i’m not going on the rides, but i really dont get scared easily. And also think getting scared is fun, so it wouldnt be stressful for me.

But if you are that worried about it, maybe its best not to go. It could be alot more stressful than fun.

Helen asks…

Which is better? halloween horror nights or howl-o-scream?

answers:

Definitely Halloween Horror Nights!! This year, they have 8 haunted houses, which is more than Howl-o-scream. I’ve been to both and the atmosphere of Halloween horror nightsis just bette. The “scareactors” are just more into it. Howl-o-scream this year is using three haunted houses and three scare zones from last year. Halloween Horror Nights had made all new scare zones and haunted houses. Check out the website. Www.halloweenhorrornights.com This year it’s centered around the movies Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I highly recommend HHN. All the way. Hope this helps!

Donna asks…

Have people forgotten about Halloween this year?

In my neighborhood, I’m seeing almost no Halloween decorations. I’m not seeing that many Halloween commercials on TV. I’m not hearing people talk about the big night. Is it just me, or are people bypassing Halloween this year?

answers:

I must say, I noticed the same thing in my own neighborhood. Usually, everyone is all excited about it and people have some nice decorations up, but I noticed that it isn’t like that this year.

I think that it is because of the financial situations and what not. I know the only reason we aren’t decorating is because we have no money. I think another reason for the lack of spirit is because people are getting so caught up in the stresses of their lives, it leaves them a lot less time to focus on less important, not-so family oriented holidays, such as halloween…

Does it feel like fall yet in your household?

Do you have pumpkin pie and hot chocolate? A fire in the fireplace? HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS?!?!?!

Or are you still in denial that summers over?

answers:

I need a jacket in the mornings – so we are definitely no longer in Summer, but I’m not really ready for Fall yet either :-)

What are some good and orignal halloween costumes?

im 12 years old and a girl and i need a good halloween costume i DO NOT WANT TO BE SOMETHING IN A GROUP so something that i can be by myself 1 persn thx!!! something unique too please

answers:

You could dress up as a guy, if you have any brothers or male friends who would lend you clothes. I did this a couple of times for Halloween and freaked out my boyfriend who didn’t think that I could really look like a guy until he saw me in costume.
Or you could wrap some clothes up in bandages and be a mummy, such a simple idea but I never see anyone do it.

Lizzie asks…

How to look pretty dressed as a cowgirl?

I have to go to this party on Halloween with my family and the theme is “western” so we all have to dress up as cowboys or cowgirls. But im 15 years old and i wanna look like cute and pretty, cause im gonna be with like 5 of my friends…my hair is shoulder length…but im not gonna dress slutty (if thats even possible as a cowgirl haha).

The party is on Halloween so i need some ideas soon.
Anyone have any ideas or tips?

answers:

Oh my gosh, there are soooooo many ways to look cute and pretty as a cowgirl! Think Carrie Underwood.
Curl your shoulder-length hair with hot rollers to create big, loose spirals, and wear a cute sun dress that hits about at your knees. Anything with cap-sleeve or peasant-top shoulders, a fitted waist, and a longer skirt, paired with cowboy boots, will look adorable. I think a dress that’s either solid white/off white, or something with a subtle plaid print would work well. Another cute cowgirl hairstyle is pigtails :)
As a tip – hit up thrift shops for very cheap cowboy boots and a variety of cute sundresses that would probably work (if you don’t already own them). As a finishing touch, you could add some turquoise costume jewelery, like a long turquoise and silver pendant, or copper, etc.
Have fun!!! I think you’ve inspired me to be a cowgirl this year too!

Mandy asks…

Should we celebrate Halloween?

Is it wise to play at evil? Should we follow our neighbors, like proverbial lemmings, off the dangerous cliff of pagan practices? Most of society has accepted the lie that Halloween is “innocent fun” and eagerly train their children to take pleasure in symbols of pagan, and even Satanic, evil.
Richard Ames, social commentator, says when parents let their children dress as witches, demons, goblins or skeletons, they are teaching their children values that will last long after the costume comes off!
Parents should have common sense, let alone basic values of right and wrong. Teaching our children to imitate evil is an abomination in God’s sight — and we will reap what we sow!
By observing Halloween, we teach our children to make light of Satan the Devil — or even to think like him! Should we then be surprised when our children remain curious about evil — or even invite it …. for the rest of the year.

In Luke 7:21, we find that our Savior cured many individuals who were plagued by evil spirits. “And that very hour He cured many of infirmities, afflictions, and evil spirits; and to many blind He gave sight.” Do we live contrary to our Savior’s example? Do we teach our children to attract and cultivate evil spirits at Halloween? Certainly, dressing up like a demon or a witch INVITES evil rather than opposes it!

The Apostle James advises us to resist evil, not entertain it! James 4:7, “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” That is your Creator’s instruction to you! “Resist the devil!” Do NOT join the masses in celebrating the dark world of Satan and the occult!
I’m not are you?

answers:

Popular Celebrations—Harmless Fun?
IN MID-OCTOBER, a strange transformation begins to take place in some cities in France. Shop windows fill up with pumpkins, skeletons, and spiderwebs. In local supermarkets, cashiers don pointed black hats. As a grand finale, little children haunt the streets, knock on doors, and threaten mischief if their demands for a “treat” are not met.
These strange customs are all part of the celebration known as Halloween. Formerly viewed as mainly an American holiday, Halloween has spread around the world, becoming popular among both children and adults. France, it seems, has embraced Halloween with open arms. According to one estimate, nearly a third of French households celebrated the event last year. The Italian daily La Repubblica speaks of the current fad as a “boom” that is sweeping the Italian peninsula. The newspaper Nordkurier states that “more [German] citizens than ever before do not want to miss out on the gruesome fun.”
Europe is not alone in falling under the spell of Halloween. From the Bahamas to Hong Kong, Halloween is being celebrated with gusto. The International Herald Tribune reports that last year a radio station in Sri Lanka held a competition for “the weirdest Halloween recipes and the most bloodcurdling death screams.” Halloween also has a foothold in Japan, where ‘pumpkin parades’ with thousands of participants have been held in Tokyo.
Even in parts of the world where Halloween is not popular, there are often festivals and celebrations that resemble it. During Britain’s Guy Fawkes Night, you can see roving bands of children who plead for money and play Halloweenlike pranks. In Taiwan, there is the colorful Lantern Festival. Small children roam the streets carrying lanterns that depict birds and beasts. Mexico has its Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a celebration that has traveled across the Mexican-U.S. Border. According to writer Carlos Miller, some Mexican-Americans still “don wooden skull masks called calacas and dance in honor of their deceased relatives.”
Most people might view such celebrations as nothing more than harmless fun—an excuse for children and adults to dress up and lose their inhibitions. Such a nonchalant viewpoint, however, ignores the fact that these celebrations are undeniably pagan in origin. Taiwan’s Lantern Festival, for example, was started when people lit lanterns in an attempt to see celestial spirits that they believed were floating in the sky. Mexico’s Day of the Dead has its origin in an Aztec ritual that honored the dead.
Some might argue that the origin of celebrations like these is of little consequence. But ask yourself, ‘Can celebrations that have such dark origins really be viewed as harmless?’ Commercial promoters of these celebrations are certainly not concerned. Regarding Halloween, a representative of the Cultural Institute of Barcelona, Spain, observed: “It is a festival that is being implanted from a commercial point of view.” Why, last year, receipts from Halloween were estimated at $6.8 billion in the United States alone. In France, a company that makes Halloween costumes has seen its business increase more than a hundredfold in just three years.
But should you participate in such celebrations simply because they are popular or profitable? In answer, we will take another look at the celebration of Halloween.
Finally, there is the fact that Halloween, All Saints’ Day, and All Souls’ Day are all based on the beliefs that the dead suffer or that they can somehow bring harm to the living. However, the Bible clearly shows that such beliefs are not true, saying: “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5) For that reason, the Bible counsels: “All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in Sheol [the common grave of mankind], the place to which you are going.” (Ecclesiastes 9:10) Since the dead are unconscious and thus incapable of harming others or suffering themselves, we have nothing to fear from them. At the same time, prayers to help them are of no use whatsoever. Does this mean that there is no hope for our dead loved ones? No. The Bible assures us that “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”—Acts 24:15.

George asks…

Halloween?

What should I be for Halloween? I usually do something with my friend. It’s usually kind of funny and definitely original (please don’t suggest witches, ghosts, dead brides… etc.) Like last year I was bologna and she was a hotdog and we went around singing the Oscar Meyer song. It was awesome. But I need ideas desperately because we usually have our costumes planned by now…

answers:

I was shopping for “buddy” style costumes and found these:
http://costumefind.com/products/show/8167 with http://costumefind.com/products/show/8168

http://costumefind.com/products/show/8180 with

http://costumefind.com/products/show/469

http://costumefind.com/products/show/8023 with

http://costumefind.com/products/show/7100

I like last set the best but, I guess if you and your friend like singing, you could sing 99 bottles of beer on the wall!
Hope this was at least somewhat helpful, they also had a breath-a-lizer on that costumefind.com site that might be fun to walk around making people say the alphabet backwards and do all kind of sobriety tests!
Good luck whatever you do.

answers:

You can all wear cool costumes; play games like Clue and 13 Dead End Drive; sing and dance along with appropriate music (i.e. Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s “Monster Mash”); bob for apples; and have refreshments like cider, orange Kool-Aid, Halloween-themed candy, cupcakes, or regular cakes — or some combination thereof!

You might want to decorate your house with fake cobwebs and spiders; hovering cloth ghosts; plastic skulls; orange lights; jack-o-lanterns; witch dolls; Halloween-related window hangings — or some combination thereof!

Michael asks…

WHo is the guy in Halloween 5 who breaks Micheal Myers out Of Jail?

answers:

You’ll have to tune in to Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Meyers for the complete answer! I don’t want to give it away… Oh, what the hell, I guess I will.

WARNING: SPOILERS ENSUE!!!

A mysterious stranger dressed in all black, has come to Haddonfield, and while Jamie sits in a patrol car outside, he causes an explosion. Jamie walks through the station finding the bodies of the dead officers. She goes over to Michael’s holding cell to discover that it’s empty, with the bars bent open.

It is revealed that the Man in Black is the leader of a Druid like cult, and that after the fiery climax of Halloween 5 the Man in Black kidnapped Jamie and had her impregnated (although viewers are never told who the father is). The baby is born on Halloween Eve and is carried away by the Man in Black. Later that night, however, a nurse helps Jamie and her baby escape (the nurse is later killed by Michael).

Dr. Terence Wynn

Dr. Terence Wynn a.k.a. The Man in Black or Nurse Wynn (January 26, 1926 – October 31, 1995) is a fictional character in the Halloween film series. He was portrayed by Robert Phalen in Halloween, Don Shanks in Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Mitchell Ryan in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers and by Sybil Danning in Rob Zombie’s Halloween

Despite being the administrator of Smith’s Grove – Warren County Sanitarium, Dr. Wynn only makes a short appearance in the first Halloween movie. In it, he is seen walking with Dr. Loomis towards his car. During the scene, Dr. Loomis expresses his anger that Michael Myers was able to escape from the facility the previous night. Dr. Wynn says that Michael couldn’t have gotten far because he can’t drive. Ironically, Dr. Loomis says “He was doing very well last night! Maybe, someone around here gave him lessons.” This is a humorous exchange for fans that have watched the sixth movie in the series because it is revealed that Dr. Wynn has been watching over Michael since his incarceration and is probably the person who did teach Michael how to drive.

Although fans did not know it at the time, Dr. Wynn made his next appearance in the Halloween franchise in Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. In his role as Michael’s guardian, Dr. Wynn leaves Smith’s Grove for Haddonfield. In the climax of the movie, Dr. Wynn, as the Man in Black, blows away the entire Haddonfield police force with a machine gun and takes Michael and Jamie Lloyd back to the Smith’s Grove sanitarium.

While hinted at in the previous film, the Cult of Thorn is greatly expanded upon in the sixth movie in the series. In this film, fans find out that Dr. Wynn is the head of a cult that cursed Michael into killing his whole family, thus explaining why he is in constant pursuit of his sister and niece. Also, it is shown that Wynn and Michael share the same Thorn tattoo. What happens to Dr. Wynn at the end depends on which version of the movie a person watches. In the theatrical cut, Michael beheads him in an operating room with other doctors from Smith’s Grove. In the producer’s cut, Tommy Doyle paralyzes Michael with rune stones. Later, Dr. Loomis approaches who he thinks is Michael Myers. Much to Loomis’s surprise, Michael has switched clothes with Wynn and left him lying there while he (Michael) escapes. Loomis takes the mask off Wynn, a dying Wynn grabs Loomis’s arm and says, “It’s your game now, Dr. Loomis.” Loomis then looks at his wrist and sees that the Thorn tattoo is now on his arm, symbolizing his new role as Michael’s protector. Dr. Wynn is not featured in the subsequent films, which retcon the previous three films out of continuity and thus the Wynn/Thorn plotline.

In Rob Zombie’s remake of the original film, Wynn also appears briefly, but is a female nurse not a male doctor. In the film, she is asked to watch a young Michael Myers while Dr. Loomis walks Mrs. Myers to her car. Wynn is not paying proper attention to Michael when he pulls a fork from his food tray and stabs her in the neck.

Dr. Wynn makes a cameo appearance in the comic Halloween III: The Devil’s Eyes, the final issue of Chaos! Comics’s Halloween line of comics, which attempt to bridge Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers and Halloween H20: 20 Years Later. Here, Dr. Wynn is shown running Smith’s Grove, where Tommy Doyle is being held, after being framed for Sheriff Leigh Brackett’s murder by the Cult of Thorn and deemed insane. Stating that Tommy has outlived his usefulness, Dr. Wynn and an orderly at the institute prepare to kill him and make the murder resemble suicide. As Dr. Wynn and his associate close in on Tommy in his cell, preparing to sedate him, Tommy fights back and beats the orderly unconscious and knocks Dr. Wynn aside, escaping afterwards. Dr. Wynn later kills the orderly, framing Tommy for the crime and also appears at the end of the comic, visiting Laurie Strode, who has gone insane, in Smith’s Grove. No explanation is offered in the comic as to how Dr. Wynn survived his a

Mark asks…

Halloween Party?

what to do at a halloween party?
and i need a lot of decorations
so they need to be really cheap
any ideas? Help Please!!! =]]]

answers:

Food: Chips and Salsa is something that almost everybody likes. You could buy the chips that are colored black for Halloween. If you want to have dinner at your party then a pizza is easy and fast. Orange soda is great. Or you could get a witch pot, and put fruit punch in it. Here is a website that has different Halloween Recipes.

Http://www.cooksrecipes.com/holiday-reci…

Decorations: An easy thing to do is buy some pumkins and carve a couple of the them to go outside and put the rest where the main part of the party will be. Like in the living room. Stack some in the corner or put the miniature ones on the table. You could buy black and orange balloons and crepe paper to decorate the rooms also. The fake spider webs are cheap and easy to find. [the ones that come in the bag and stretch out] You could put little tacks on the ceiling and walls and attatch the siderwebs on the tacks so they don’t fall. We replace all of our lights with black lights for our Halloween parties. And in one room we put red lights in to change it up a little. In one room you could put in a strobe light. And outside by your front door you could put a fog machine. I don’t know how scary you want your house to look and what your money limit is, but if you wanted it to be scarier, then i would suggest no crepe paper or balloons. Instead you should go to a Halloween store and maybe buy a skeleton that you can hang in the room along with a couple other scary manicans.

Games ect: A fun thing to do during a party is have a scavenger hunt. You could have one at your house or one where your parents have to drive you places. At my party last year it was boys vs. Girls. [my friends vs. My brothers friends] My mom drove the girls and my dad drove the boys. It was so fun to have to go into stores with our costumes on all together. And we took a picture with the item we had to find..for proof. Here are some of the things we had on our list.
1. Tortillas [mummy skin]
2. 6 dog bones [skeleton bones]
3. Tomato soup [blood]
4. Scary Movie 3 and Gostbusters
5. 10 pumpkins
6. Yellow leaf
7. Hay

Another game is the apple game. It is kinda like bobbing for apples. You cut the centers out of apples. 1 for every person and put a string through the hole. Tie the string to something high so the apple hangs down. We hang ours in the garage on the bars on the ceiling that the garage door goes up on. Then you have to keep your hands behind your back and try to eat the apple. Its really hard, but fun.

Another game that we play is…we split up in teams of two. The 1st person from each team puts a balloon in between their thighs/knees and jumps across the room to the other side and once they get across they put their balloon on a hard chair or ground and has to sit on it to pop it and once they pop their balloon the next person to goes and its a race to see which team can get done 1st. If your balloon falls you have to go back and try again.

Another game is called the pumpkin game. This game is played in teams that race to be the first to pass the miniature pumpkins without using their hands. Make two teams. Each team gets a mini pumpkin which the first person places under their chin. The mini pumpkin is passed down the line, person to person by holding it under their chin and passing it this way, no hands allowed!! The person holding the mini pumpkin can stand in front of the next person for easier passing. All teams start at the same time, first team to get their pumpkin to the end of the row and back again to the starting person is the winner.
