Fog machines are now very inexpensive and readily available during the Halloween buying season. Adding one or two to your haunt or party makes a big impact on your Halloween celebration and will add that extra effect to thrill and scare your trick or treaters.

You can sit one on your porch while handing out candy, use a few in your graveyard scene to add that spooky realism of a foggy night in the cemetery, make a fog chiller to make ground fog or use a leach line PVC pipe hidden under leaves to make the fog rise from the ground.

Visit Got Fog? for everything you need to know about fog machines.

Halloween Idea #13
Use apples for taper candle holders. There are so many varieties of apples to choose from at this time of year, you can make a nice display using apples, mini pumpkins candles. Choose apples for the color and size and also by how they sit. Make sure the bottom is relatively flat so that t will sit properly with no chance of tipping over.

You can use an apple corer to make a hole in the center of the top of the apple. For long tapers, go all the way to the bottom of the apple. You can also find a corer that is about the size of a votive candle as well. This works well using mini pumpkins and small gourds, too. You can make a nice autumn center piece for your Halloween party table or Thanksgiving table that will look and smell great!


Halloween Idea #14
Great Halloween party idea, start a circle ghost story! Sit in a circle and start a scary ghost story. Each guest adds on to the story until it reaches a scary ending! Visit the Halloween Ghost Stories site for lots of spooky stories and even a guide to telling them.

This is also fun to do on any autumn night if you have a camp fire burning or in doors by the fireplace with family and a few friends. Having an autumn fire burning just it's warm glow gives an air of spookiness to ghost stories.

Make the stories age appropriate. You don't want to be telling some ghastly story to a bunch of 5 years olds! Make sure that the group has some guidelines for the group story telling.


Halloween Idea #15
Record your Halloween memories with a digital movie camera! Interview some of your trick-or-treaters, party goers, your yard haunt, carved jack-o-lanterns and the like. You'll be glad you did when you sit down to watch it later!

Have several people take turns using the camera so that everyone can be included if it's a Halloween party setting. If it's a haunt, you might want one or two people stationed in different areas to catch the expressions as people walk through. If it's a kids party, you'll want to keep up with recording for a few years just for the memories and so they can pass it on to show their kids someday!

Having a party for little ghouls? Let them make their instruments out of oat meal canisters, tin cans with a lid (put rocks inside), add inexpensive plastic flute, noise makers, kazoos and have the kids start a musical Halloween parade through your neighborhood!

The kids love it and the neighbors will, too! You can have them go up one side of the street, stopping for candy at each house and then back down the other side, with a parent or adult going with them.

Halloween Idea #18
An alternative to bobbing for apples is to hang them by their stems with thread from the ceiling and let party goers try to bite them!

It's much more sanitary when you think about it. Bobbing for apples entails many kids all trying to bite onto an apple floating in water. All that saliva is full of germs! No wonder kids get colds so often after a Halloween party that includes bobbing for apples.

This way, you tie a thread to each apple and use a thumbtack to hang them from the ceiling. Once an apple has been bitten, remove it. If the child tried to bit some with no luck, you can quickly clean them off using a paper towel and a fruit & veggie cleaner!
