Lawn Ghosts, Witches, Angels

What you will need
Cheap Plastic Drop Cloths
White paper, newspaper or even leaves to stuff the heads
6 or 8 Lengths of rebar- 3 to 4 feet high
Clear packing tape
a bunch of older outdoor white Christmas Lights with a long extension cord
1. Hammer your rebar into the ground in a circle formation

2. Cut lengths of drop cloth double the height you want your ghosts
3. Form the head by balling up paper. When you have a large enough ball place in center of stretched out dropcloth section.
4. Gather the drop cloth and cover the paper forming a head, almost as if you were covering a lollypop
5. Place "head" of rebar and wrap packing tape around plastic to form neck.
6. Randomly cut up from the bottom of the plastic to form ribbons
7. Gather at the waist area and tape again. Your ghosts should now look like armless lollypop dolls at this point.
8. Cut several long strips of dropcloth to form arms. These are crisscrossed and tied arround chest area, then each "hand end" is knotted to the next ghost's "hand end" to look like they are holding hands.
9. Place your heap of lights on the center and plug in!

You can keep these up thru Christmas-
Just add wings and string the lights around them
and they become Angels!!!
Just don't forget the aluminum foil halos!
Or add pointy hates and they are witches!

Zombies Rising Party Game

What you will need

> Sunglasses for everyone playing

Object of the game

> To convert as many people as possible to your side before the time is up!


> When it got dark we played zombie rising! Its hide and seek in the dark but the the seeker was a zombie. If he caught you he infected you and you had to help him search for the others. Sounds too easy but there is a catch. You have one hour to play but the zombies where the dark lol.

> If the humans can sneak up on a zombie and take their glasses off, the zombie becomes human and hides again. Another catch, the zombies are not allowed to touch their sunglasses. So they cant hold them on and make it harder.

> Gaurenteed that people will want to keep playing even after the time is up!

Tragic Sam Party Game

A great party game that will quickly become a tradition is Tragic Sam!

Dim the lights or use a candle or have guests close their eyes (but it makes it hard to write) before beginning your story, the goal is that you guests will Create a story about Tragic Sam who apparently died in an accident and the CSI (Crime Scene Investigators) need your help to identify the remains found at the scene.

The CSI team has placed what they found of what they believe Sam in these. Rumors on the street are that Tragic Sam faked his own death, but we are not so sure, so we are going to have you investigate the remains so we can solve this mystery.

Now pass them around and tell people to put their hands in the bag and write down what they think the item actually is, NO PEEKING!

Think is believed to be Sam’s brain – (cooked spaghetti or cooked cauliflower)
His heart (peeled tomato)
His eyes (peeled grapes)
We found his teeth scattered around the floor (un-popped popcorn)
His fingers (baby carrots)
His liver (slice Spam in a weird shape) .

When you are done you can have your guests turn in their answers and score who did the best. The one with the most right wins. Basically, you can make the story as gross as you want or tame. This one is great for creeping people out lol.
