I admit to a fascination with bats. Perhaps it's because I'm so nearsighted and think it might be nice to have radar when I've knocked my eyeglasses off the nightstand. Or, maybe I like how they swoop in nearly silent loops through the night skies above our hay field. They don't scare me in the least. Anything gobbling up spiders and bugs is okay in my book. Our very cute Halloween Mobile boasts five friendly bats with felt fangs and button eyes. Stuffed with polyester fiber fill, they are soft and chubby and ready to fly above your door to welcome trick-or-treaters.

During American Idol this past season, General Larry Platt gained his fifteen minutes of fame with a wild rendition of the song, Pants on the Ground. "Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin' like a fool, with your pants on the ground."

"Here Fishy, Fishy." Make your own colorful curtain for this classic kid's party game. Johnny (or Janie) stands in front of the curtain with a pole; mom or dad is on the other side with a bowl of prizes to clip to the end, guaranteeing the day's friendliest catch. It's a fun game they'll fall for, 'hook, line and sinker.' As an added benefit, you can use the curtain to cover a real window after the party's over.
