- Tomato soup makes great ‘blood'
- Stuff lychees with red grapes to make creepy eyeballs
- Freeze jelly or soft drink in a thoroughly cleaned rubber glove and float in punch.
- Dismembered fingers: Make short-bread dough into finger-shaped cylinders. Pinch dough slightly to form knuckles and draw in lines (to make curling fingers, drape over rolled-up aluminium foil). Bake and cool. Use icing to paste on almond halves for fingernails. Blood red icing for the ends of fingers is optional
- Worms in dirt: put some worm lollies in Milo.
- Put sultanas into drinks to make bugs
