If you want to scare the kids this Halloween, try dressing up as a zombie, and sit outside on your porch with a bowl full of chocolate bars. You have to keep very still, so that people can't tell if you are real or not. I did it a few years ago, and not one child was brave enough to help themselves to the chocolate bars that I held in my lap. Parents kept shining their flashlights in my face, and only one dad was able to tell that I was actually a real person! For the zombie effect, this is what you do:
Save your eggshells up and crush them in the blender. Take a mixture of flour and water (to make a glue) and mix in the eggshells. Put Vaseline on your face and hands, (otherwise they will dry out badly) then coat them with the eggshell mixture. It looks hideous and scares the daylights out of everyone who sees you! What fun!!! It's especially effective if you get some creepy music, and decorate your porch with all kinds of cobwebs and spiders etc, but you have to keep very still to pull it off. Then, when the kids are least expecting it, you can move or make a groaning noise to make their hair stand on end and give them a dose of Halloween fun!
