Orange and black streamers. Jack o'lanterns (real ones, maybe, made by a class in the school for the dance.) Scarecrows. You could make giant ghosts out of old sheets. Bundle up something (wad of newspaper, old tee shirt, etc) into a ball about the size of your head. Put this in the middle of the sheet, and gather the sheet around it. Tie with string around the neck.

You now have a ghost - head and flighty body. Hang from the ceiling or on the walls. Use cut outs of black paper pinned on for eyes and mouth, if you don't want to stain the sheet. You can make baby ghosts the same as this out of sheets of kleenex and draw on eyes and mouth, but they are likely too small to decorate at a dance with.

Make bat outlines out of black construction paper, and hang on strings from the ceiling. I saw on FB where you can draw jack o'lantern faces on milk jugs, (say 3 to 5) cut a hole about the size of a half dollar in the back of each, and then illuminate them with a string of orange hallowe'en lights stuffed into the jugs from the back.

We are throwing a Halloween dance at my middle school and I'm in charge of running the contest, but I'm having a hard time thinking of any thing that middle schoolers would enjoy. Please help!
