Goblin Lights
from Halloween Online


  • 5 or 6 glow sticks
  • Helium balloons (preferably in a dark color) as many as you have glow sticks
  • Ball of string
  • Bricks to weight the balloons

Tie the balloon on a really long piece of string, about 5 feet under the balloon tie on a glow stick then let the balloon carry the stick high in to the air (do not let go of the string!). When you think it is high enough, tie the string to a brick. The lights float in the breeze and will glow for about 3 hours. The kids really love them and ask what they are… and you tell them they are Goblin Lights!

Glowing Lawn Maggots


  • Rice
  • Woolite Laundry Liquid
  • Paper Towels
  • Black Light Bulb that fits your porch.

Cook rice. Lay cooked rice out on towels to dry in a thin layer (you get chunkier maggots this way <ewwww>). When rice is dry, put rice in a bowl a bit at a time, pour a little Woolite laundry soap over the rice and mix. Be gentle so you don’t squash or smush the rice. Spread the rice out on a towel in a thin layer and dry again. On the night of your party, sprinkle the rice maggots around on the lawn or on the porch. Put the black light bulb in your porch light and turn the light on. The rice maggots will now glow under the black light. You could also take old stuffed animals, rip holes in them and put the maggots on them….. plus I am sure that if you use your imagination, you can think of other gross things to do with the Woolite maggots….
