I was thinking about putting my daughter like a lunatic or a girl warning passerbys not to enter the maze because Jason is in there.

Whatever you ultimately decide to do...
it needs to take the newness look away from it. Which means aging it: destressing it, maybe round it around in mud or dirt, spray paint, shredded burlap, etc.

We had a crate in our garage-haunt last year. It was on top of a work bench, propped open a few inches with a dim red bulb inside. And that was it. Well, that and my nephew hiding UNDER the desk with a werewolf mask strapped to the back of his head!

However, your crate looks more like the ones the 'Raptors were kept in in Jurassic Park...

I saw an Fx once a a haunted house a crate like that all covered up with little peekholes in it inside was a dim light very dim with a shape in it and there was some kind of motion sensor so when you got close to the peekholes all hell would break loose inside the crate sound,lights,banging.scared more than a few people and everyone wondered what was in there.

You could use it as walls if you have a walk through type haunt. Distress it add lights and webbing and have an actor behind it following or running up at the tot's.

I have used a torch to distress new wood works great. Just have water nearby just in case. Did this on my pirate crosses.

I agree. It's perfect for a cage or containment item. Weather it up and place someone or something inside. Motion activated or an actual actor. Live actors usually work best.
