    Normally things like bin liners (you can get black, white, green etc) for them to rip up etc, sellotape, perhaps some pretend fangs, old red lipstick so you can draw blood on (or paint that will wash off or face paints), and anything else gruesome looking (so maybe old rubber gloves they can chop up or use to create false hands)

    Excellent prog Louise - that's Halloween sorted!

    What do you hang the donuts from?

    And is the Mummy challenge to wrap one of them up in loo roll? How do you do it as a relay? (May have to miss that one off, as my first prog back in January was going to be my Egyptian fridge magnets and Mummies. I was going to call it "I want my Mummy" ...!)

    And what is the stuff they put their hand into - I've used cold tinned spaghetti coloured bright red before now - what do you use?

    Thanks

    Donuts - depends on where you are - could be dangling from a door frame on string, attached with lots of blue tack. Or a staff / broom handle suspended between two adults, again with donuts on string or ribbon. Remember the idea is they have their hands behind their backs - so it's harder than it sounds!

    Mummy relay - one Cub starts the "wrap", whistle blows and has to run back to hand over the toilet roll to the next (and yes, that means lots unwinds and they get in a tangle... but that's half the fun.


    Stuff to put hands in - we've used various things for this and a "I'm a Cub, get me out of here" night too. They can be blindfolded or the boxes covered whatever works. Yes, we too have use cold canned spaghetti (told them it's worms). - and on occassions had them blindfold to eat "worms". You can also use something that moves - we have a remote control replica giant spider(you can get wind up ones too) ... hide it in some leaves and watch them jump as they feel it move!I also like bowls full of "eyeballs" - peeled cherry tomatoes or grapes are great for this one, maybe in chopped up jelly to add an extra slime factor
