HEAD IN A JAR
Create your own using photo editing software or search online for “flattened head image”. Then simply add to a jar of water and pop in the fridge. For a more eerie glow, add a drop or two of food colouring. Green or yellow works best.
CREEPY EYES IN THE BUSHES
Take old cardboard toilet rolls and cut eyes shapes out of them. Put glow sticks inside and hide them in the bushes. It will freak out the neighbours and those passing by!
Create an “undead ted” and place him innocently amongst your kids toy collection. Any joke shop should have the fake blood and fangs you need for this. Youc an also try adding chicken bones for chopped off arm!
Forget about wearing one of these things. Leave it facing your child as they sleep. Trust us. It will get them out of bed in the morning in no time!
As oldie but goodie and super easy too. Sipmly stick some false nails on the ends of hotdogs to create “fingers” your children can happily gobble up. Leave them lying around the house for added menacing effect. Make sure they don’t eat the nails!
If you want to go all out, turn one of your rooms into a crime scene. Masking tape the outline of a body to flooring, leave bloody fingerprints on the light switches and “clues” around the room. CSI tape and numbered tags add an authentic touch. You can even make it into a game for the kids with a prize for the one who guesses the murder weapon or murderer.
