I found this on the internet and thought I would shard:  a little game called GHOSTING.  What you do is create a little bag of Halloween goodies, along with a ghost and a letter, and put it on the doorstep of two neighbors.  Then knock and RUN!

Treats:  Whatever you choose
Ghost:  To put on their door to let everyone know they've already been ghosted.  I printed mine, but it could also be made out of tissue paper, or a kleenex over a tootsie pop like when I was a kid.
Letter:  The letter is the instructions of what they should do next, and I put a Halloween poem in mine.        (see below)

My roommate and I got our neighbors the other night.  You should have seen us run and hide behind the cars so they wouldn't see us.  Hilarious!  Now we are waiting to see if the ghost goes up on their doors, or if they "hit" someone else.

Bubble, blubber, squirm and gloop,
Boiling broth of bat's tail soup.
Wobble, slobber, liquid goo,
Add the sole of one old shoe.
Spooky shadows dance around,
Of frogs and rats and snarling hounds.

Steam swirls rising to the roof,
Add one small ear and one old tooth.

Gnarly, scratchy, tickle and itch,
Stir round and round to make it rich.

Mushy, sticky, sizzle and stew,
They're making mischief just for you


Late last night, we left you a treat. The tradition is fun, one we hope you'll repeat.
Take the ghost & pin it on your door, to let others know you need ghosted no more.
Now it's your duty to pass on the surprise, to two more families, we must advise.
Gather some treats and deliver them soon, within two nights, under the light of the moon.
Include a ghost with each package you give, along with this poem for the tradition to live.

1.        Get 2 goodie bags or lunch bags
2.        Fill with treats & a ghost (picture or art)
3.        Put a copy of this letter in each bag
4.        Deliver after dark, ring the door bell, and RUN!
5.        Put your ghost on your door so we know you have been HIT


Spooks. Scares. Serene
