Halloween Activities: Boxes From The Attic

halloween-pumpkin-2This is a fun craft and very inexpensive project for Halloween parties. You will need several large boxes (copy paper boxes, boot or shoe boxes are perfect) to create these.

You can pick these items up at the craft or dollar store:

A bag of cobwebs
Black cloth
Spooky stuff for the inside of each box

Make a hole in the end of each box large enough for a hand to reach in and feel what is inside.

Add a different spooky/creepy item to each box and then drape the whole thing with black cloth and some spider webs. Add a few plastic black spiders and maybe some dust (talc, baby powder or cocoa powder and you are ready to pleasantly frighten your guests.

When each guest reaches into a box, be sure to mention what you think might be in it in a spooky creepy voice so they are already prepared to be creeped out!

Eyeballs: Frozen peeled grapes or wet olives (not the pitted variety).

Intestines: cold, wet spaghetti. Thoroughly spray if with a non-stick cooking spray so that it feels slimy and doesn’t clump up.

Liver: A half of a canned peach

Clammy Skin: A piece of plastic trash bag that has been oiled or has Crisco lightly spread on it or an oiled soft flour tortilla

Fingers: Chicken bones or hotdogs

Hand: Freeze water in a latex glove. Drape it over a small bowl to form a realistic shape while it is freezing. Place in a tray of sand or rice so that your guests have to dig around in the graveyard dirt to find the hand. Very spooky!

Hair: An old wig, a dolls head or the silk off of a cob of corn

A Safe Halloween is a Happy Halloween

As we all shut down for the evening and get on the roads to head home to our families and little trick-or-treaters, please be sure to be especially cautious this Halloween night.

Here are some Halloween safety tips:

Drive slowly and use… caution when passing stopped vehicles, a driver might be dropping off kids.

Watch for children darting out into the street. Always use your turn signals, and if you have to pull over or drop off kids, turn on your hazard lights.

Limit your distractions while driving by waiting to call, text or search the road until you’ve made it home. Texting and driving is illegal.

Wait until you get to your destination to put on a mask or other headgear. This can limit your vision while driving, preventing you from seeing the entire roadway.

And for adults, if you plan on drinking make sure to have a designated driver and know who that person is before driving to a party.

Have a Happy Halloween!
