I decided to have some with the kids tonight. So I took them on a scary walk. We dressed up warm and put our boots on. I then set the scene by telling them there was something scary here tonight and we needed to find it. I advised them to get their torches as it was going to be dark out there. We then turned all the lights out in the house.
We then opened the door and headed out into the night. I kept pretending to see things behind a wall or in the shadows. The girls were excited and scared at the same time. It was fun. We ended up in our back garden. We continued to look behind things and building up the atmosphere.
We then headed into the house and we gradually worked our way up the stairs. I introduced the idea that there was a monster around and we needed to be cateful.
We finally made there room and I said the monster must be in here so go careful. And that is when the monster pounced. I grabbed them and started to tickle.
The monster had been found. They loved it.
