I am surprized to know that lots of people on places like ehow and DIY.com STILL recoment this!!!!! I have recently been surfing the internet for some ideas for my haunt this year, and I found this on about a third of the articles! This is something that I remember doing in first grade, and none of the kids were scared, just interested. The only kids that will be "brave" enough to enter the haunt will be too old to care, and will spread the word that your haunt is lame. Bowls and tubs of food just aren't scary. What do you guys think about this?
