The Halloween Phantom

Ok, I don't know about where you live but around here the
Halloween Phantom is a big deal.
We were visited by the Phantom last night!!

What is the Halloween Phantom you ask?

Well, It's a Bit Like Secret Santa.
Secretly deliver Halloween treats and a poem from the Phantom to your neighbors and start a fun chain reaction that will end up all over the neighborhood!
To get the Phantom rolling:
1. Download and print 2 copies of a ghost. I went to Photobucket and found the picture on my blog. Really, you can just outline a ghost shape with a black marker along with this poem.....
The Phantom has been here with a treat just for you.
He crept to your door in a fog misty blue.
This isn't at trick, this treat isn't for free,
Now it's your turn and the Phantom you'll be.
The Phantom loves treats and also loves rhymes
Take this ghostly poem and reprint it two times.
So he won't strike again, hang this on your window or door.
Take this and a treat and deliver two more
to a neighbor or friend in the black of the night
Pound on thier down and give 'em a fright
Then on Halloween night there surely should be
Phantoms on all of the doors or windows we see
Happy Halloween!"

2. Create 2 bags of Halloween treats and attach a copy of the poem to each bag.
We have recieved and given fun stuff!
Make it creative using cute goodie bags or tins and add candy, halloween themed toys, spider get the idea.

3. Secretly deliver the candy and poem to two homes in your neighborhood.
It is a good idea to ring the doorbell and run before the people you are spooking see you.
Your neighbors/friend's will then put the poem on their window/door and deliver candy to two other homes. It is interesting to watch how many people in your neighborhood will have the ghost posted on their windows before Halloween.
Have fun!!
