I am thinking of shrinking my haunted house this year to be much smaller and much more toddler oriented. My teenage step kids don't want to help set up and clean up the larger gory haunted house I have done in the past, so I want to concentrate on my young daughter and do a haunted house for her. She will be two and a half for Halloween in 2009.
My wife and I did a small little kids maze in the front yard for 2008, which was a big hit. I want to do something similar for 2009, but expand on it a bit, and add some automated props.
I need some ideas for different areas. Of course there will have to be a Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin area. But I am trying to decide what other areas to build, that won’t be scary for a toddler.
If you have seen any of my posts, you’ll know I have no problem with electronics/motors/pneumatics – I was considering just lighting effects and motors for this type of haunt, The pneumatics are too quick an too scary for toddlers (I think).
