TRAVEL TUESDAY - LOST SOULS - THE HAUNTED HOUSE IN THE BASEMENT AT WASHINGTON SCHOOL - FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS

Each year the 5th Grade class at Washington Elementary transforms the basement of the oldest school in Fayetteville into a haunted house, for the schools Fall Festival.
We hung voluminous amounts of black sheeting, dimmed the lights, fired up the smoke machine, and abundantly decorated, to provide those mortals brave enough to venture down the steep stairs, a journey  through uncharted territory. An expedition they wouldn't soon forget.
This year the theme was a "haunted cafeteria". We started with a range of foods designed to disturb and disgust, "blood" stained table cloths, bones on the floor and rats on the table. Guests then traveled on to a "jail cell", where Lost Souls banged cafeteria trays and screamed to be let out, then continued their intrepid journey past an electric chair. The adventure concluded with the offer of a refreshing glass of "bats blood", and a fright, when a hand reached out from under the table to grab an ankle of the unsuspecting adventurer.

Some of the disgusting food - blue tortilla chips for bat ears, black twizzlers for witch veins, cheese puffs for troll boogers and dried banana slices for rat brains
Also on offer in the "haunted cafeteria" spaghetti and eyeballs

LOST SOULS


Melt 6 ounces of white chocolate chips, transfer to a small plastic food storage bag. Squeeze the air out and seal the bag. Cut a 1/8 inch piece from the corner. Draw a mournful face onto each cookie (I used cocoa cremes from Little Debbie). Make a "LOST SOULS" sign and attach it to the jar of cookies.
Enjoy!
