1. Monster Party
Decorate your yard and house with signs of a monster. Create huge footprints from the street to the front door (some door mats are shaped like footprints and you could use them to make the monster’s path or cut the prints out of foam sheets). Set a place for him at the table with a giant place mat, a straight-sided glass vase as a drinking glass, and a barbecue fork, butcher knife, and large serving spoon for cutlery. His plate can be a large, round tray and his soup bowl, a tureen. Pipe a loud voice down from the attic or up from the basement. Have guests dress as monsters; the scariest get a prize.
