We love Halloween and we love our home-made haunted house! Every year, our whole family, plus some friends and neighbors, work together to transform our front yard into a haunted graveyard and our house into a spooky mansion. Our costumed visitors usually gaze in wonder. They approach our house wondering if they should run away or join the fun.
Haunted houses are one of the best of all party themes for Halloween. You will need some props if you've decided to have a party, or even if you just intend to scare a few trick-or-treaters.
To make it convincing you'll have to go further than just a scary scream or two, but that is an excellent place to start. Think back to all the stories you've been told, or even better, if you've been to the haunted house ride at your local fair or theme park, to get some good ideas.
